HANOI, May 30 (Xinhua) -- After a five-year break, "Miss Teen Vietnam" will return to the largest scale ever, featuring Vietnam's talented and beautiful teenagers, according to the organizer on Tuesday.
Themed "Dream to be a Star," the pageant will be held from June to November to find the most talented and beautiful girl who will be crowned "Miss Teen Vietnam" at the finale on Nov. 11, reported Vietnam's state-run news agency VNA.
"Miss Teen Vietnam 2017 will be held on the largest scale ever," said Nguyen Thanh Hung, head of the organizing board. "This year, the organizers want to bring the contest closer to contestants in distant areas who can register online for the qualifying rounds."
Girls from 16 to 19 years old and at least 1.55 meters tall, including Vietnamese living abroad can register for the contest, excluding those who have undergone plastic or transgender surgeries.
"Miss Teen Vietnam" was held in 2006 for the first time by the Ministry of Information and Communication.
