After four months, various stages, and from 158 applicants, we have finally found our winner! Stuff Cambodia hosted Cambodia’s Gadget Girl 2016 – The Finale on December 7th at Phnom Penh’s Hops Brewery and Craft Beer Garden.
Cambodia’s Gadget Girl 2016 is the biggest online contest in Cambodia searching for confident, intelligent and tech-savvy Cambodian girls who inspire others in this technology-driven age.
The overall contest has reached 1,209,903 readers and receiving 59,837 interactions (as of 05.12.2016) from our audiences.
Stuff Cambodia presented a shortlist of 40 contestants out of 158 applicants and asked our online readers to vote for the girls they liked most. They were asked to vote based on entry forms featuring photos, videos, skills, descriptions of activities, work, hobbies and other criteria.
During the Gadget Girl 2016 Finale, the Top 6 girls were asked to introduce themselves and to showcase their talent individually on stage. Our group of judges announced the Top 3 and the girls were thrilled – but there can only be one winner.
The winner was ecstatic. Her face lit up when her name was announced. Tep Sothy, 22 years old from Phnom Penh is the Gadget Girl 2016, and went home with a bag full of outstanding prizes from our key sponsors – Porsche, Nikon, Gloria Jean’s Coffees, Hops Craft Beer Garden and Flormar Professional Makeup.
Ros Sony, 23, and Chhom Muyny, 19, were the runner-up and second runner-up respectively. Lam Kimchansphy, Yorn Maliya and Kong Kimheng were the others to enter the Top 6. All Top 20 girls were also gifted great prizes from the sponsors.
The Gadget Girl 2016 Finale event has been streamed online via Facebook Live to make sure that those who could not make it to the event were able to see the crowning of the Gadget Girl 2016.
However, Sothy’s success story continues. The Stuff Gadget Girl 2016 continues to share her knowledge on stuff-cambodia.com and the Stuff Cambodia Facebook page to inspire more young people who make their dream come true. Stay tuned!
