The founders and coordinators of the event, Khotso Nong and Thabang Modisane, emphasise that Miss Teen Meadowlands is all about celebrating the beauty of young women, regardless of their physical appearance or abilities. They express gratitude for the sponsors supporting the event and the aspiring contestants vying for the crown.

The Miss Teen Meadowlands team is driven by a mission to promote girl development and inspire young women to become future global leaders. They aim to make a positive impact on the community by fostering a positive self-image, personal growth, and community awareness among young girls.

This year’s pageant will have ten winners, with five from the pre-teen category and five from the teen category, each receiving a prize from a reputable local organisation of their choice. Contestants are also provided with mentors to guide them on their journey leading up to the grand event.


The pageant goes beyond the superficial aspects of beauty and glamour, emphasising the importance of forging a sisterhood among contestants and empowering them to make a positive impact in their communities. Lisa Mabote, a modelling coach who started her own journey on this platform, highlights the development of confidence, leadership skills, and a sense of social responsibility as key outcomes of the pageant.

Nong and Modisane call for additional sponsors and financial donors to support the young girls and help the pageant expand its reach beyond Meadowlands, ultimately becoming a success story for Soweto. Their passion lies in nurturing the potential of young, driven women and enabling them to create meaningful change in their communities.
