The Miss Grenada Pageant is coming back to the Lake City after a six-year absence, and scholarships and prizes await the young ladies who take home the crowns.
Three girls will be crowned on November 23, including Miss Grenada, Miss North Central Mississippi and Miss Northridge.
The pageant will take place at the Grenada High School Auditorium at 7 p.m.
The pageants are preliminaries to the 2014 Miss Mississippi and Miss Mississippi’s Outstanding Teen pageants.
“This is a great opportunity for girls from this area to win some valuable prizes and to represent their communities,” said Mary Lauren Brunson, the reigning Miss Grenada.
Brunson is a 2008 graduate of Kirk Academy. She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Mississippi in communicative sciences and disorders and is currently pursuing her graduate degree in early oral intervention.
Participants must be 18-24 years old and have never been married. Service to the community is also an important part of the qualifying process.
Contestants will also be judged in the categories of private interviews, evening gown and swimsuit. Girls may register at www.missdeltablues.com.
