MISS HATTIESBURG FEATURES TRIPLE CROWNS
The Leaf Foundation announces the availability of applications for its official Miss America preliminary pageants, to be held at 3:00 pm on Sunday, November 23, 2014. Last year the Hattiesburg-based local pageant produced both state titleholders: Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen Grace Munro and Miss Mississippi Jasmine Murray.
Miss Hattiesburg’s Outstanding Teen, Miss Southern Magnolia’s Outstanding Teen and Pearl River Valley’s Outstanding Teen will be crowned during the competition. A total of three teens will be sent as representatives to Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen Pageant from the November 23 local preliminary pageant.
According to Miss Hattiesburg Executive Director Martha Lee, “The teen division is open to young women who are 13-17 but have not yet reached their senior year of high school.” Contestants in the Teen division will compete in interview, talent, active wear, and evening wear.
Miss Hattiesburg, Miss Southern Magnolia, and Miss Riverland will also be crowned. These three “Miss” division categories will each send representatives to The Miss Mississippi Pageant, which will be held next summer in Vicksburg.
Both Miss Hattiesburg and Miss Hattiesburg’s Outstanding Teen must live, work or attend school in Covington, Forrest, Greene, Lamar, Jones or Perry counties while Southern Magnolia and Pearl River Valley’s Teens as well as Miss Riverland and Miss Southern Magnolia represent the state at large.
“We are excited that The Leaf Foundation offers these opportunities for scholarship,” says Miss Southern Magnolia Executive Director Dr. Carroll D. Pierce. “The Miss Division is open to young women who are 17-24 and are at least a high school senior.” Contestants in the Miss division will compete in interview, talent, swimsuit, evening wear and platform/community service.”
Colleges and universities currently participating in the Leaf Foundation’s Scholarship Program include: Antonelli College, Jones Junior College, Pearl River Community College, Jackson State University, University of Southern Mississippi, Delta State University, and William Carey University.
