Director of the Waitukubuli Dance Theatre Company Raymond Lawrence says the Miss Teen Pageant provides a platform for the young ladies to build self-confidence.
Lawrence was speaking at the launch of the 40th Annual Miss Teen Dominica Pageant at the Arawak House of Culture last week.
He says the Teen Pageant helps strengthen the visual and performing arts programs in schools.
Meanwhile, Lawrence says the Miss Teen Pageant should not be viewed as a competition.
