Get ready, the Miss Byrnes Pageant is being held on the Jan. 24th through the 26th of this month at the District Fine Arts Center starting at seven p.m. each night.
The directors of the pageant are Kevin McCall and Jared Hembree.
There are fifteen female contestants in grades nine through twelve participating in the pageant. Each one of the contestants has to participate in categories such as opening number, casual wear and evening gown.
All of the contestants will also be required to be interviewed by a judge.
Contestants also have to perform a talent for the audience and judges. Some talents that will be demonstrated include reciting a monologue, singing, and dancing.
Many students and parents will be there to support their favorite contestant.
Ninth grade pageant participant, Shaylyn Simmons, says she will prepare for the pageant by practicing and perfecting her pageant walk. She will also prepare by deciding outfits to wear for each category.
“I think the pageant will go good because we have had a lot of practice and rehearsals,”said Simmons.
The winner of the pageant will receive gift certificates, get to appear on TV, and will win $1000 educational scholarship as her prize.
