CARY – The Cary Grove Area Chamber of Commerce will be accepting applications for the 2014 Miss Cary and Miss Fox Fiver Grove Business Scholarship Pageant through Thursday.
The pageant is open to women ages 16 to 21 who are Cary or Fox River Grove residents.
“We have had so many amazing young women from our community involved over the years,” Pageant Director Lisa Raupp of Mary Kay Cosmetics said in a news release. “Each year they benefit from working with the female business leaders in the community who serve on the pageant committee. Our goal is to help these young women develop professional skills that will help them get into college and to pursue successful careers.”
Before the pageant, contestants are formally introduced to the business community and area leaders, get involved in community service and are trained in speaking and presentation skills. The pageant will be May 10 at Cary-Grove High School. Both Miss Cary and Miss Fox River Grove receive scholarships of $1,000.
