Holiday pageant participants compete for scholarship


The Miss Holiday in the City pageant was resurrected three years ago as a scholarship competition open to area high school seniors after being absent from the downtown celebration for many years.

This year’s event will be held at 2 p.m. Nov. 24 in the auditorium at United Senior Services Center, 101 S. Fountain Ave.

Applicants must complete a questionnaire about future plans and community involvement, write an essay about why they believe the award is important and answer a question in front of the judges during the competition.

The winner will received a one-time $500 award and the first runner-up will receive a $300 award.

This year’s participants in the pageant are:

• Zoe Klang, Kenton Ridge High School.

• Kendra Trumbo, Springfield High School.

• Danielle Alyssa Hale, Kenton Ridge High School.

• Tanya Khan, Kenton Ridge High School.

• Torie Hines, Kenton Ridge High School.

• Megan Holbrook, Tecumseh High School.
