Next Miss City of Maricopa to be crowned this weekend
Not going out of town and looking for something to do this holiday weekend? The 3rd Annual Miss City of Maricopa Pageant is being held Saturday night.
Miss City of Maricopa is a local pageant of the Miss America Scholarship Organization. As a non-profit organization, each year Miss City of Maricopa awards nearly $2000 in scholarships to young women ages 17 to 24 for higher education. Their goal is to assist these young women in pursuing their personal and professional goals while being a role-model for service in our community.
Last year's winner, and current Miss Arizona, Jennifer Smestad will be on hand to crown the winner. This will also be the last local pageant where Smestad will perform before heading off to Miss America.
The Miss City of Maricopa Pageant will be held this Saturday, August 31st, at the Maricopa High School Performing Arts Center, 45012 West Honeycutt Avenue. The event begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10.00 at the door and can be purchased in advance through any of the contestants, or by contacting Jennifer Mix at firstname.lastname@example.org or Yovonie Johnson at email@example.com.
