La Mesa and Santee seek pageant contestants

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CBS 8) - Feel like wearing a crown, having a title or at least do you want to compete in a pageant? If so, some local pageant officials are looking for you.

On Friday, March 6, 2015 the cities of La Mesa and Santee will hold one of their most grand traditions, the Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee Pageants.

Pageant organizers are currently seeking outgoing residents ages 13-26 to participate in a program that has been a tradition in the cities since the late 1960's and is an outstanding mentoring program for young women.

The pageants are sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce and focus on community service, networking, public speaking and interview skills. Additional, there is no swimsuit competition.

Each of the 2015 titleholders will receive a scholarship of $500 or more in addition to a fabulous prize package.

The contestants will be scored on personal interview, speech, poise and personality, evening gown, and on-stage impromptu question. Pageant photographers will present the Miss Photogenic award, contestants will vote for the Miss Congeniality award and a local educator will choose a winner for our essay-writing contest.

Interested contestants can download an official entry packet online.

Contestants will be accepted until Sunday, February 8, 2015.

For additional information, including information on the Princess Program for girls' ages 6-12, please contact pageant Director, Sierra Billock, at 619-672-0688 or via email
