Contestants will compete in five phases of competition at the competition, including private interview, on-stage question, physical fitness in swimsuit, talent, and evening gown.
During the competition, each contestant will also discuss her chosen platform, a social or community issue of concern to herself and our society at large.
The winner of the Miss Wayne County Competition will be awarded $500 in scholarship funds for her college or graduate school education. Other cash scholarships will be awarded to preliminary competition winners, runners-up and special award winners, such as overall talent, overall physical fitness in swimsuit and community service.
During her year of service, Miss Wayne County will travel across the state, speaking to government officials, business leaders, community groups and all types of citizens about her platform issue and encouraging them to become involved in her cause. She will also be eligible to compete for the Miss Michigan title in Muskegon in June.
The pageant will begin at 4:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
