Miss Harmony Scholarship pageant


Mon, Jun 15th, 2015
Posted in Harmony Features

2015 marks the 16th 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 eight contestants. This year’s contestants are Lexie Dols, Laura Donney, Shelby Ebner, Megan Hendrickson, Erin McKay, Taylor Pierce-Sprenger, Gabrielle Shupe, and Caitlyn Walsh.

Three girls will be chosen to represent the Harmony area 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 19-27. 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 pizza and pool party, a tour of Niagara Cave, pedicures, and a day full of informal and formal judging.

Coronation will be held on Saturday, June 27 at 7 at The Hall. There will be an evening gown portion as well as an on-stage question. The girls have prepared a commercial 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 during the week. Some of the locations include Harmony Healthcare, the Visitor’s Center, Meals on Wheels, First Southeast Bank, Heritage Grove, and Harmony Foods.

Once again this year, there will be a “Community Choice” award; this award goes to the girl the community has seen doing an outstanding job volunteering and representing the Harmony community. There will be a container for each girl set up in the lobby of the First Southeast Bank and the Harmony Public Library where the public can drop money into the container of their choice. The containers will be available starting Friday, June 19 through Friday afternoon, June 26. They will also be available through intermission at coronation before being collected and counted. The girl receiving the most money in her container will receive the “Community Choice” award. All funds will be donated back to the pageant for expenses and scholarships.

After the court is decided, the girls will represent .....
