The application fee to be attached for Miss Namibia's entry is N$850 and N$700 for Miss Teen Namibia. 

The nbc's Corporate Communications Officer, Beaulah Boois-Beukes, outlined the characteristics for Miss Namibia and Miss Teen Namibia.

Sharpley at the event said being Miss Namibia was more than just a title; it meant bringing changes to individuals' lives and communities.

The current Miss Teen Namibia, Karsten, encouraged her successor to come out and inspire others, saying Miss Teen is more than just being beautiful.

All application forms should be in by March 31.
