LAKE COUNTY – The Miss Lake County Scholarship Program and Pageant, an official preliminary pageant to Miss California and Miss America, is in the process of recruiting contestants to participate in the upcoming pageant.

This year the pageant will be held on Saturday, Aug. 7, in the showroom at Robinson Rancheria Resort and Casino in Nice.

The scholarship program is open to all young women who live, work or attend school in Lake County.

The teen program is open to ages 13 to 16 and the Miss Lake County program is open to ages 17 to 24.

They also have a Princess Program for girls ages 6 to 12, which introduces the girls to the Miss America program. The young contestants participate in community events with the teen and miss contestants and will be introduced and “crowned” on stage at the August pageant.

Two orientation sessions are scheduled this month.

The first will be held on Saturday, May 15, from noon to 2 p.m. at the Konocti Dance Academy, located at 4274 Old Highway 53 in Clearlake.

The second will take place on Sunday, May 23, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Mendo-Lake Credit Union meeting room, 963 11th St. in Lakeport.

Prospective contestants need only attend one session.

Parents are invited to attend the orientation sessions with their daughters. All areas of the competition will be covered, including talent, lifestyle and fitness, evening wear, on-stage question and private interview. Academic achievement and community service also are considered in a contestant’s overall evaluation.

Rehearsals will start in early June and are usually held once a week. In addition to the regular rehearsals, they are offering, for the first time, yoga classes to all participants.

Even if this is their first year competing, young women will have a lot of fun and meet great girls. The volunteer committee members are there to support and mentor contestants throughout the program.

Organizers also are looking for community members who would like to join the program.
