Miss Harmony

Posted in Harmony Arts & Culture

2013 marks the 14th year of the Miss Harmony Scholarship pageant. Pageant coordinators, Amanda Heibel, Emily Kiehne and Allison Whalen are very excited about the activities that lay ahead for the six contestants. This year’s contestants are Sydnie Huffman, Kayley Olson, Victoria Peterson, Sarah Reicks, Keeley Todd, and Danielle Zinsmaster.

Sydnie is the daughter of Jason Huffman and Dulcie Huffman and is sponsored by the Harmony Telephone Company. Kayley is the daughter of Amy Van Hoof and Craig Olson and is sponsored by the Village Depot. Victoria is the daughter of Mike Peterson and Tracy Peterson. She is sponsored by RE/MAX Select Properties. Sarah is the daughter of Jim and Renee Reicks and is sponsored by the Village Square restaurant. Keeley is the daughter of Charlie and Patty Todd and is sponsored by the Harmony Golf Club. Danielle is the daughter of Janet and Troy Christianson and Jeff and Jane Zinsmaster. Danielle is sponsored by Harmony Enterprises.

Three girls will be chosen to represent the Harmony community by judges from outside the community; Miss Harmony, 1st Attendant, and 2nd Attendant. The contestants will vote on a Miss Congeniality- this is the girl that contestants feel is the most welcoming, friendly, and has the best disposition.

The week’s activities will take place June 24-29. Some of the events the girls will participate in are a sponsor’s reception to recognize the sponsor’s and community members that help make the pageant possible, a scavenger hunt, a pizza and pool party, pedicures, and a day full of informal and formal judging.

Coronation will be held on Saturday, June 29 at 7:00 pm at Wheeler’s Roller Rink. One of the changes being made to the program is that the girls will have some on-stage judging at coronation. There will be an evening gown portion as well as an on stage question. The girls will also present their commercials that they have written about their sponsor, the 4th of July festivities, the City of Harmony, or a combination of these. The commercials will have been judged earlier in the day, but will be presented to the community that evening.

The girls will also be putting in many hours volunteering around town that week. Some of the locations include Harmony Healthcare, the Visitor’s Center, Meals on Wheels, the ECFE group, First Southeast Bank, Heritage Grove, and Harmony Foods.

Once again this year, there will .....
