Miss Oak Harbor Scholarship Pageant Informational Meeting

by Jes Walker-Wyse 28th November 2016

 

 

Pageant Wyse will soon be accepting applications for the 2017 Miss Oak Harbor Scholarship Pageant on Mar. 9, 2017. An Informational Meeting will be held on Dec. 5 at 6pm at the Oak Harbor Library. Any Oak Harbor freshman-senior girl who would like more information about competing for college scholarships totaling over $8000 is encouraged to attend. Meet past Miss Oak Harbor royalty, and have all your questions about the pageant answered.

 

Applications for the 2017 pageant are available at Peoples Bank, the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce, pageantwyse.org, and by emailing pageantwyse@gmail.com. They will be accepted in person only at Peoples Bank Dec. 12 through Jan.6. The 2017 pageant is limited to the first 25 applicants.

 

In 2016, the Miss Oak Harbor Scholarship Pageant awarded almost $10,000 in scholarships and awards. The 2017 total will likely exceed that. The pageant is presented by Pageant Wyse, Inc., whose mission is to provide scholarships for young women interested in the advancement of their education through the spirit of a competition that embodies the four points of the crown: scholarship, service, success and style. This unique six-week program focuses on personal and professional growth through the development of leadership, communication and marketability. Our hope is that participants will gain confidence, self-esteem and a sense of accomplishment that will enable them to serve as role models for the youth of their community.

 

More information can be found at www.pageantwyse.org, by emailing pageantwyse@gmail.com, or by speaking with any of the Pageant Wyse Board of Directors: Jes Walker-Wyse, River Powers, Mollie Brodt and Shannon Lonborg.
