The Miss “20th of May” Pageant Committee is still accepting applications for contestants for the 2011 pageant. This year any young lady in high school and/or college interested in participating in the pageant may do so by Saturday, March 19, 2011 @ 9am. The first rehearsal and $35.00 registration fee for the pageant will be held at the Madison County Recreation Center on that date.
Pageants theme: “Gifted, Gorgeous, and Going Places”
The purpose of this pageant is to give young women an opportunity to showcase their talents and abilities in order to better themselves. Miss 20th of May will be a spokeswoman for the Madison county Recreation Association and this annual cultural event. The pageant is in recognition of the Florida’s notification of the Emancipation Proclamation by President Abraham Lincoln.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: Any young, local resident woman in high school or college never married and never having had a child, is eligible to participate. The delegate must be a resident, citizen or born in the county she will be representing. Appropriate documentation regarding the age and residency status of the delegate must be submitted in order to meet the eligibility requirements.
We also encourage anyone that wants to be on the pageant committee to join the meeting as well. The pageant will be held on Friday, May 20, 2010 at the Madison County Recreation center at 7pm. The cost of admission is $7.00. For more information call Mrs. Renetta Parrish at 850-464-0610 of Mrs. Tami Brown-Wilson at 850-673-6702.
Thank you for your continued support Madison County.
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: email@example.com.
