Miss Sierra Leone Limited is a national beauty pageant in Sierra Leone that was formed in 2001 12. The pageant is sponsored by the government of Sierra Leone in Freetown and is organized under the Miss Sierra Leone Ltd1. The pageant has had its first pageant in 2001 and has since organized more and improved pageants in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019, all of which were acknowledged as the best entertainment events of the years in which they were hosted 23. The winner of Miss Sierra Leone represents her country at Miss World pageant. On occasion, when the winner does not qualify (due to age) for either contest, a runner-up is sent. In 1986, Alice Matta Fefegula was the first Miss World contestant to represent Sierra Leone. In 1990, Sia Matturi became the first University student to win the title, and though she did not compete that year in Miss World, she became the first titleholder to win an international title by winning Miss Africa 1990 in Banjul, The Gambia 1. The Miss Sierra Leone Limited is not just about crowning a queen; it is a not-for-profit organization with a core objective of selecting a beauty queen who will embody strength, beauty, and intelligence. The winner will serve as a role model, inspiring young women in the country to become responsible and respectable citizens
