Two young women will be crowned Miss Three Rivers Festival and Miss Three Rivers Festival’s outstanding Teen on Saturday, October 15, 2011. In partnership with one of America’s classic traditions the Three Rivers Festival will be naming two ambassadors to serve as Miss Three Rivers Festival & Miss Three Rivers Festival’s Outstanding Teen. Both titles will go on to compete at Miss Indiana & Miss Indiana’s Outstanding Teen.
“ I am looking forward to what this year’s show will bring,” said Jenee Johnson, Executive Director of the Miss Three Rivers Festival Organization. “Intelligent young women from across the Hoosier state will compete for this title and it is exciting to realize that one of these young ladies will be this year’s ambassador for the Three Rivers Festival and could be the next Miss Indiana or Miss America.”
Emceed by Sara Engerman Church- Miss Indiana 1997 this year’s pageant will begin at 5:00 p.m. at C2G Music Hall in Fort Wayne with tickets priced at $10 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. A silent auction will also be held during the Saturday evening program to raise funds for the Miss Three Rivers Festival scholarship fund.
Contestants will compete to the tune of Michael Jackson’s music with categories in both the miss and teen competition including a 90-second talent performance, personal interview, lifestyle and fitness, on-stage question and evening wear. Miss Three Rivers Festival Courtney Jurick and Miss Three Rivers Festival’s Outstanding Teen 2011 Taylor Knox will make a special appearance as they crown the new titleholders who will earn spots on the Miss Indiana stage competing for the opportunity to become Miss America or Miss America’s Outstanding teen. Pre-Teen T.R.F. Zoie Grossnickle & Little Miss T.R.F. 2012 Hailey Pushis will be on hand to help with the crowning ceremony.
Any young woman between the ages of 13 and 24 who lives, works or attends school in the State of Indiana is eligible for the title of Miss Three Rivers Festival or Miss Three Rivers Festival’s Outstanding Teen. As the Three Rivers Festival promotes itself around northeast Indiana and the entire Hoosier state, the new titleholders will also have opportunities to further the image of the festival in addition to the Miss America program.
The Three Rivers Festival is proud to join the Miss America program in offering scholarships and enrichment opportunities for some of the most intelligent, outgoing, multifaceted and stylish Hoosier women.
