• It is important that participants take note of the voting procedure which will help us to choose the 10 finalists as well as the winner: Photographs of participating girls will not only be published in Noordwester, but will also be posted onto our website and Facebook pages. Noordwester will then invite the public to vote for the pageants of their choice. It is VERY important to note that girls with the most votes in combined and direct relation to the printed Noordwester ballot paper as well as our website (www.noordwester.co.za) and Facebook pages will qualify as finalists. A girl who for instance, has the highest number of votes in total on our website but few or no votes in the two remaining forums, will unfortunately not qualify as a finalist.
