Junior Miss program contestants sought

The Nevada County Junior Miss scholarship program is now looking for contestants for the 2003 program to be held on March 22.

Nevada County’s Junior Miss is open to all high school junior girls in Nevada County who are U.S. citizens. The Junior Miss program is not a beauty pageant. Contestants will be evaluated on scholastics, 20 percent; interview, 25 percent; talent, 25 percent; fitness, 15 percent; and poise, 15 percent. The goal of the program is to honor young women who excel in these areas and to encourage them to continue on the path of excellence. They have the potential to earn money for college while assuming roles of leadership in their communities and professions and setting examples for other young women to follow.
