In a first of its kind event Miss United Nations SA Pageants and the South African Heroes Awards will be sharing one stage, crowning and announcing 2021 winners in their respective titles and categories.
The awards which are in their 3rd year were launched in 2019 with the aim to celebrate unsung heroes. Winners will be announced in Rural Development, Community Service, Women Empowerment, Youth Empowerment, Specialised Care, Community Health and Business Empowerment.
“These awards recognise the work done by community heroes in bettering their people. It’s a token of appreciation for people who are doing amazing things and an expression that says we see you, we appreciate your work”, said awards founder, Amanda Matshaka.
Mr & Miss United Nations South Africa sets a different example by not going for “typical” pageant look but gives a platform to contestants of all shapes and sizes. The winners in the Mr, Miss & Miss Teen will be the beauties and brains to represent the country internationally.
Speaking on the collaborations, Pageant Director Mpho Botha said: “this collaboration made so much sense to our organisation as we pride ourselves in empowerment and the South African Heroes Awards were the perfect platform to partner with to make our message more powerful that anyone can be a hero in their community through any platform”.
The prestigious crowning and winners’ announcement event will take place at the esteemed Lesedi at Joburg Theatre on 25 September 2021 and tickets are available at www.joburgtheatre.com
Strict covid-19 health protocols will be adhered to.
