A beauty and talent show ‘Miss ZNU’ has become an event of a city-wide scale. Nowadays it is looked forward not only by the University students and staff but by everyone with an eye for beauty. This year the beauty contest was held on the eve of Native Land Defender's Day. So on February, 22 the Drobyazko Hall had full house. People came to support the contestants as well as to enjoy a wonderful show.

The unforgettable event was organized by the Centre for Cultural Events, ZNU and its head Yuliya Yanko, and was supported by the Student council  ZNU, headed by Andriy Bondarenko. In the very beginning Rector of ZNU, Professor Mykola Frolov gave an opening word. He assured the spectators and the jury that the female students of Zaporizhzhya National University were all very pretty, so choosing the Beauty Queen would not be an easy task to do.

The ambiance was inspired by  the 1930s Chicago, which was notorious for its prohibition law, gangsters and jazz and was dedicated to a famous American actress Marilyn Monroe. So all contestants made an attempt to try on the image of stunning Marilyn.

The girls were judged by the following jury: a well-known local photographer Denys Minaev, deputy head of the travel agency “Agros Tour” Anna Kisel, a representative of the 'Woman of the 3rd millennium' Award Iryna Borsch, director of the information website '' Yuliya Kondratenko, director of 'Ivan-taxi' Ivan Shmyglya and a representative of the vote count panel Evgen Churbas.

During the first presentation all contestants came out wearing white dresses - kind of 'Marilyn Monroe style'. Next time they had “beach looks” and again the audience gave a storm of applause. Afterwards the jury had to evaluate the photo portraits of the girls that had been made before the competition.

The talent show was the climax part of the night. Although many participants performed dancing, the judges liked singing as well. At last the girls came out wearing wedding dresses that accentuated their grace. They tossed wedding bouquets to the audience and flashed captivating smiles.

The beauty queen title went to Anastasia Klimova – a student of the Faculty of Social Pedagogics and Psychology of ZNU. Vice Miss titles were arranged as follows: First Vice Miss – Nataliya Tonne (The Faculty of Law), Second Vice Miss – Nataliya Osipenko (Economical and Law College of ZNU), Third Vice Miss – Management student Elina Korobova and the Fourth one – Anastasiya Melnik (Faculty of Economics).

Unique style and beautiful voice of Ruslana Gupalo (Journalism Faculty) was distinguished with a title 'Miss Charm'. Sofiya Tyuryukanova from Historic Faculty became 'Miss Temptation' for her Asian dance and Victoriya Polyakova (Faculty of Social Sciences and Administration) got the title 'Miss Perfection' for an impeccable modern dance and her appearance in a wedding dress.

Anastasia Minakova (Economical and Law College of ZNU) was called 'Miss Grace' for a sensitive dance of love. Taisiya Rybalko (Faculty of Social Pedagogics and Psychology) was titled 'Miss Smile'. A wonderful romantic song brought Darya Parafiynyk (Faculty of Mathematics) the title 'Miss Talent'. And Nataliya Protsenko (Economical and Law College of ZNU) became 'Miss Photo' for her impressive portraits.
