Now is the time to once again crown the new representatives of our community. Applications for the annual Miss Madison County Pageant are now available at Becky’s Dance Steps Studio, located at 438 E Base Street in Madison. Ages are as follows: 0-11 months, both boys and girls; 12-23 months, boys and girls; 2-3 years, boys and girls; 4-6 years, Little Miss; 7-9 years, Petite Miss; 10-12 years, Junior Miss; and13-15 years for the title of Teen Miss Madison County. Contestants who are between the ages of 16 to 24 years old will have the opportunity to compete for the coveted title of Miss Madison County, along with a chance to win scholarship money. As a way to get more young ladies involved within our community, a new category this year will be added. The title of Ms. Madison is for any lady who is married, single, divorced or with children and is at least 20 years old.
With the incredible success of last year’s Mr. and Miss Heart of Madison program, we are pleased to announce once again that anyone who wishes to participate can do so without having to enter the actual pageant. This program raised a grand total that surpassed $1,000 for our Miss Madison scholarship fund, which in return aided last year’s Miss Madison, Ashley Hollingsworth. Since this program holds such prestige, everyone who participates and completes the requirements will walk away with a beautiful crown, sash, or cape.
The pageant is set for Saturday, April 2, at Van H. Priest Auditorium. Applications may be picked up at Becky’
s Dance Steps Studio. The deadline has been extended to March 11, so be sure to submit applications early as spaces are limited. For more information feel free to contact Toni Blanton Norris at (850) 673-1162 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
