In coming together after some 300yrs, it became clear that efforts must be made to instill the spirit of being a citizen of Gbi not only in the elderly who are excited about finding their lost brethren but also among the youth who are the future leaders. To do this, it was agreed that the crowning of an annual youth queen dubbed MISS GBI must be made a core component of the annual Gbidukorza celebrations.
The Queen will represent the Youth at the apex body of the organization which is the National Steering Committee mandatorily for a period of one year.
THE MISS GBI PAGEANT IS THEREFORE:
THE FINAL EVENT NIGHT
The MISS GBI final event is a night
The final event must be preceded by a minimum of two auditions (One at the Gbi Traditional Area and the other at the Peki Traditional Area) to select finalists who must be camped for a minimum of two weeks (14 days) where each delegate is groomed to:
In addition to the above, the camping period provides the Delegates as well as the Production Team the opportunity to learn about Gbidukor, the issues confronting it and the Nation and the roles the youth can play to ensure that we move Gbidukor and Ghana forward in the right direction. This is important as every Delegate is expected, by virtue of participation, to act as an Ambassador for Gbidukor anywhere they find themselves for the rest of their lives.
POST EVENT CAMPAIGN
The Queen and her two runner-ups, besides working with the National Steering Committee will engage the youth of the two groups that make up Gbidukor, focusing on encouraging the youth to take more interest in the development of Gbidukor and the country.
It is also expected that they will work closely with the Production team to work on the teams chosen project for the year. However, it is expected that whatever project is picked must be approved by the National Steering Committee and must promote Gbidukor, provide opportunities for youth development and promote nationalism.
Miss Gbi is therefore not a day’s event. Delegates who participate in the event are active Delegates for a year and are, as a matter of priority, trained to be Peace and Development Ambassadors for life.
ORGANIZING OF MISS GBI
The production of a Pageant is a specialized activity that requires team members who have a track record of integrity and understanding of the responsibility that comes with the task. It is also a high budget event and so the team should have the capacity to raise funding for the event as well as to support the Queen and her team during their reign.
Whiles the National Steering Committee has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the event comes off and is properly done to project the Gbi State, it is recommended that opportunity be given to private individuals and organizations to bid for the organization of this very important and crucial event with a clear understanding that the National Steering Committee remains the custodians of the brand on behalf of Gbidukor and as such must be involved throughout the process.
