You don’t need to be surprised anymore! Beauty Contests happen now and then in Nepal. But come on let’s explore this interesting theme of Beauty Contest, “Miss Teen Green”. Sounds cool, isn’t it? Their focus is no less cool, “Hariyo Ban Nepal ko Dhan”. So here we have one more beauty contest in the country, “Miss Teen Green” which was held for the first time at ragya Bhawan, Kamaladi on January 14, 2011. And winning the title among 26 contestants, Ria Acharya is the first ever Miss Teen Green Nepal 2011.

Ria Acharya was successful in impressing the judges with her straight answer to “Why aren’t there many women entrepreneurs in Nepal?” And with the title comes a new role for Acharya, she has to promote local conservation leadership by actively taking part in supporting environmental programs. Najma Mathema and Rashmita Ranjitkar were the the first and second runners up respectively for the Miss Teen Green.

While when it comes to media, everything looks perfect. Into every beauty contests, we come up with same lines; the participants were fairly selected, justly evaluated and the cliché one “not just the outer beauty was considered, inner strength was focused more”. But how important are these beauty contests? Do they really provide a “good platform to boost morals and help create independent women” as Anuradha Koirala believes?

What I believe is beauty contests have been more of a business now, mainly for the mushrooming modelling agencies in the country. What do you think? Your comment will be appreciated!


  1. I think beauty contests give the young girls in Nepal a platform to show their talent in modeling field. It gives young girls a chance to put their voice up, speak their mind out, build up their confidence and live their dream. I totally agree that not every body wants to be a model but let me tell you this; if modeling is what you want to choose for your career then participating in a beauty contest like this is a great way to start a career in this field. I see no harm in organizing and participating in a beauty contest.
