As a Regional Delegate from British Columbia I arrived in Toronto at 1:30pm.
At 6:30 pm we entered into the Ballroom which is located on the top floor at the Airport Holiday Inn in Toronto to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada. This was the first opportunity to meet everybody on a more personal level, which excited me!
I called this evening the “Sponsor Party”.
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 allowed us Miss Teen Canada Delegates to come visit the building they bought to start up their business! What is their business exactly, you ask? Nuvango creates fashion. They also create phone cases, and use certain artists designs on the cases and the clothing! How cool is that?! moment center by offering up some designer clothes
#nuvango #nuvangostyle , thankyou!!
There were free designer sunglasses from V.P.I. Canada, one pair for each regional delegate.
I found my pair of glasses. Thanks VPI Canada – I’ll make you proud.
Here’s a pic of me wearing my shades at the party with Kara! @VPICanada
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.
SQUAREONE SHOPPING CENTER
Square One shopping center gave us a gift bag with a $30 gift card to spend at their mall! Thank you @shopsquareone !
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! My favourite was the salted chocolate.
Sweets Canada is on Twitter @SweetsCanadaCA and so is their parent company Q Foods Canada which tweets from @QFoodsCanada

One highlight of the 2016 Search for Miss Teenage Canada was the opening night party where Regional Delegates from across the nation were showered with gifts from Sponsors. Busy corporate CEOs like Sam Dhutia of Qfoods Canada appeared in person and dispensed gifts.
Sally Hansen provided products for gift bags and dispensed products at a make-up station at the welcome party.

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.
Thank you #ryallgolf for giving us lessons at your club on Wednesday, I wouldn’t be a professional if it wasn’t for you and your beautiful course! ⛳️ #royalontariogolfclub #golf #puttingwithmario #drivingwithian #chippingwithjohn
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 #archersArena #combatArchery #gameOfFoam #toronto #championsArena
