Miss Harmony Scholarship Pageant


Mon, Jun 18th, 2012
Posted in Harmony Arts & Culture

This is the 13th year of the Miss Harmony Scholarship Pageant; we have three candidates vying for the title. They will be seniors at Fillmore Central High School in the 2012-2013 school year. Along with the title of Miss Harmony, there will also be two attendants chosen by judges who do not have connections to the girls. The attendants will each receive a $300 scholarship and Miss Harmony will receive a $600 scholarship. The program is sponsored by the Harmony Area Chamber of Commerce with scholarship donations coming from local businesses.

The program will be the week of June 18th-22nd. Events the girls will participate in are a sponsor’s reception to thank the businesses that help make the program successful, a pizza and pool party, pampering each other with pedicures, and a formal and informal judging. The girls will also be seen around Harmony volunteering at Harmony Healthcare, the library, visitor’s center, Meals on Wheels, serving popcorn at the bank, selling 4th of July buttons at Harmony Foods, and serving ice cream at Heritage Grove. Once again this year, we are going to have a “Community Choice”, an award that will go to the girl the community has seen doing an outstanding job of volunteering and promoting the Harmony area. There will be containers set up for each girl in Harmony’s First Southeast Bank lobby where the public can drop money in the container of their choice. At the end of the week (June 22nd), we will collect the containers and count the money. The girl with the most money will receive the award at coronation; the money will be donated to the 4th of July celebration.

The four girls represent Harmony for a year by attending area parades. They will also help out in the community with the Conservation Club pancake breakfast at the fire hall, judging the kiddie parade, the customer appreciation dinner in August, Breakfast with Santa in December, and other events as they happen.

This year we are again going to hand out two titles of “Little Miss Harmony.” We have seven girls, entering either 1st or 2nd grade in the fall, running for the title. These girls will join the older girls for the sponsor’s reception, a little pampering, judging, and coronation. They are also invited to join them at some of the volunteer activities.

On Wednesday, June 27, the Harmony Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting their annual Family Fun Night at Selvig Park. Beginning at 4:30, Fillmo .....
