2.1.Be a Role-Model.  You have become an instant role-model. Always follow the rules and guidelines so that other girls look up to you.    Take that position seriously and always be conscious of your actions.  Have proper etiquette, manners, and be a charming young lady.  Always maintain a good moral character and always look nice and be a good example of a prim and proper lady.

2.2.Look and Act the Part at all times.  You are expected to always look and act respectable when in public, make sure you dressed appropriately, hair and makeup on point and keep the perfect poise.  When wearing your sash you need to look like you stepped out of a vogue magazine and this is applicable to all photo's taken and posted.

2.3.Values & Vision.  You will need to live by the vision and values of our pageant.  Learn them and know them so that you can be a role model. Our pageant is an institution we all need to respect and promoted.

2.4.Goodwill Ambassador.  You need to encourage friendship and sisterhood between you sister contestants, other winners, young girls and all interested in pageantry.  These girls should be your new best friends.  Hold get together's and engage with the girls and help with promoting the pageant.    Plan events together, encourage each other, and work hard together.  You will strive to be a goodwill ambassador to represent your pageant and your country.

2.5.Promote Your Pageant and Sponsors.  You need to promote the Miss Teen Namibia brand and the sponsors.   Help recruit girls to sign-up.  Sponsors help with so much, so treat them well, promote and be available for them.

2.6.Social Media.  Social media can be a huge help in bringing awareness and publicity to you as a contestant.  You will be expected to do regular posts on Facebook and Instagram to promote the pageant and yourself. This is how you get your message across so if you have a platform or charity you support, this is a great way to get attention to your cause as well.

2.7.Community Project.  Find a Purpose.  Many girls will already have a platform/charity/cause/purpose, if you do continue to further this purpose.  Use this platform as a microphone to amplify your passion and bring attention to what you care about.  If you don't have a platform yet, find something that excites you or that you have a personal connection to.  Use this platform to make a difference.

2.8.Appearances.  Start planning appearances.  Whether it is a pageant, charity event, race, community festival, sponsor, etc- anything can be an appearance.  Getting yourself out there in the community is important for a contestant.   Promote your pageant system by appearances, give of yourself to others by volunteering at a local fundraiser, help your sponsors out by assisting at an event of theirs, etc.  Sometimes appearances are given to you- but often, you have to search on your own.  Contact various charity organizations and offer assistance.  Reaching out goes a long way.  By notifying friends and family and people via social media- you can be "recruited" for many events.  Say yes to all of the opportunities that come your way.  You get one year- and it will go by fast- make the most of it.
