Deadline approaching to enter Miss Cary-Grove Business Scholarship Pageant

Winner receives $2,000 scholarship

CARY – The deadline is approaching to enter the Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce’s Miss Cary-Grove Business Scholarship Pageant 2018.

The winner of the pageant, which will be May 14 at Cary-Grove High School, receives a $2,000 scholarship.

“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 statement. “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 confidence and enhance their professional skills that will help them get into college and to pursue successful careers.”

The pageant focuses on leadership, professionalism and public speaking, according to a news release from the Chamber. Leading up to the main event, contestants formally are introduced to the business community and area leaders, participate in community service events and receive speaking and presentation skills training.

On the night of the pageant, women participate in an evening gown competition and an interview session, and they give a presentation to their business sponsor.

Women ages 16 to 21 who live in Cary or Fox River Grove are eligible to apply, and the deadline to turn in applications is Friday.

For an application or information, call the Chamber office at 847-639-2800 or visit www.carygrovechamber.com.

Chamber members who are interested in sponsoring a pageant contestant also are needed.
