Registration opens for 4th annual Miss Wilkes Co. Pageant Sept. 25

Registration is now open for the fourth annual Miss Wilkes County Pageant, set for Saturday, September 25.

“This year, U.S. Savings Bonds will be awarded to the winners,” Ashley Barnett, pageant coordinator said. “We’ll give a $50 savings bond to all the division winners and $200 to the girl chosen as Miss Wilkes County 2010.”

Entry applications will be online at MissWilkesCountyPageant. com or may be picked up at the Washington-Wilkes Chamber of Commerce located on The Square.

As they were last year, little boys will be welcome to enter, Barnett said. “But this year, we will have only one group for our handsome little guys – Little Mister Wilkes County for boys ages 2 to 5.”

Barnett is excited about the fourth consecutive year of the pageant. “The first three pageants have been wonderful,” she said. “I know it was a great experience for all of the girls.”

In addition to the boys’ class, pageant divisions will be: Toddler Miss, 12-23 months; Tiny Miss, 2-years; Little Miss, 4-6 years; Petite Miss, 7-9 years; Deb Miss, 10-12 years; Teen Miss, 13-15 years; and Miss, 16-20 years old.

There will be mandatory rehearsals for all contestants on September 23 at 6 and 7 p.m.

Contact Barnett at 706-678-2013 or email misswilkescountypageant @yahoo.com with any questions.

Barnett said that the pageant is seeking sponsorships and will be selling ad pages for the pageant program.
