2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada has officially begun!
As a Regional Delegate from Ontario. I arrived in Toronto at 2:30,
At 6:30 pm we entered into the ‘ballroom name* at the Airport Holiday Inn in Toronto to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada. I was feeling confident.
The party was amazing and so much fun!! I am so thanful so all of the things that were sponsored for us and couldn’t wait to use them!!
There was a good selection of high quality Oral B traveler’s toothbrushes specially monogrammed from Archer Dental because they care about our oral hygiene when we’re away from home competing for a crown.
Nuvango created a shareable moment center by offering up some designer clothes and a full length mirror. This is a girl party mainstay. Later in the week our ensemble will be making a visit to the Nuvango headquarters (Tuesday July 19)
There were free designer sunglasses from V.P.I. Canada, one pair for each regional delegate.
I found my pair of (https://www.vpicanada.ca/SUNGLASSES/style-1003/) for sale online for $28 plus shipping and handling. Thanks VPI Canada – I’ll make you proud.
Anyone can find the round frame vintage style sunglasses at VPI Canada sunglasses e-store, and there are over eight styles to choose from … these fit my face perfectly.
Rimmel London provided a surplus of products for the girls’ welcome bags. They set up a make-up station with lots of extras. A lot of fun happened here throughout the evening. Find the team on Instagram & Twitter: @rimmelllondoncan, and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RimmelLondonCanada
Hashtagio is a Social Media Aggregator and User Generated Marketing Platform that was at the show collecting all our social media tagged with the #MissTeenageCanada2016 and then projecting it live at the party. Even better, they make a single feed URL to which our parents and friends can subscribe to follow along in real time as we experience all the different activities here in Toronto. And the mass of spontaneously issued images and text from all 65 delegates will be archived on this page in the Miss Teenage Canada main site and on the Miss Teen Canada Blog Network / Search for Miss Teenage Canada 2016.
Sam Dhutia from Sweets Canada was at the party doing chocolate tastings. Sam made a very informative and delicious chocolate tasting exhibit – after each sampling he generously gave out gourmet chocolate bars , and or edible flower chocolate bars, depending on each delegate’s individual preferences, as discovered during the tastings.

BRADLEE RYALL GOLF ACADEMY
Another fun exhibit at the Opening Night Sponsors’ Party was from Bradlee Ryall Golf Academy which teaches golf lessons at six golf courses west of Toronto.
On Weds July 20th we’re all going to the golf academy to play a one-hole golf game for two ladies golf jackets (which are prizes from SWING active wear) at the end of our group lessons on two different courses. Here at the party there was a live mini golf attraction set up for us to practice our putting.
At the party there was a bow and arrow (with a giant marshmallow on the pointy end) and we all took turns trying to hit a paper target that was setup in the ballroom. We’ll ALL be playing Archery Tag in Toronto at Archers Arena on Thursday July 21st 2016. On that night, look for the hashtag #archerytag.
BATA SHOE MUSEUM
We’ll be visiting the Bata Shoe Museum on Tuesday, July 19 at 11:30 a.m.
