Last Saturday night at the city centre-based Theatre Labonita, Uganda witnessed the crowning of Miss Earth Uganda 2016-2017. 13 girls from 13 districts namely Wakiso, Masaka, Luwero, Iganga, Jinja, Mpigi, Kampala, Gulu, Soroti, Budaka, Mbale, Luwero and Mukono took part in this year’s edition.
Miss Earth Uganda is mainly aimed at promoting awareness on the environment and its conservation and the 13 girls left the pageant with knowledge on how to love and conserve our environment. At the coronation night, the girls battled in 4 categories – the National Costume, Swim Swift, Evening gown and question and answering. They didn’t only stop at showcasing their attires to the revellers, but also competed hard to convince the judges on the run-way and in showing their confidence levels
At the end of it all, Achieng Priscilla from Tororo was crowned Miss Earth Uganda, Nekesa Melody Modesty from Jinja crowned Miss Earth Uganda Fire, Nakirya Hindu crowned Miss Earth Uganda Air and Naula Stellah Marris from Soroti crowned Miss Earth Uganda Water.
