CLARIFICATION 03/20/2019 7:45 p.m.: No dollar amount for the scholarship awards has been determined as yet.
March 20, 2019 – The 2019 Miss Valley Fest Pageant is scheduled for Saturday, April 6, beginning at 6 p.m. CDT at Sequatchie County High School (SCHS). Friday, April 5, is the deadline to enter.
Applications are available at the Valley Fest website and must be delivered to Fran Chapman or the Sequatchie County-Dunlap Chamber of Commerce by that date.
There is no current reigning Miss Valley Fest because the contest skipped a year – there was no pageant in 2017.
Contestants will be judged on beauty, personality, and poise. The top five contestants will be required to answer a question posed by the emcee on-stage during the pageant.
Contestants in the Miss Valley Fest Pageant must be 17-21 years of age, from Bledsoe, Marion, or Sequatchie County, and either a graduating high school senior or currently enrolled in an accredited degree program or vocational school.
The winner will receive a scholarship and will make appearances in local parades, the annual Chamber of Commerce dinner, and other events.
In addition to the Miss Valley Fest competition, the pageant includes categories for birth-7 years of age (male or female) and up to 16 (female only), and 55+ years of age.
