The Miss Harbor Cities Organization is looking for the next Miss Harbor Cities
and Outstanding Teen to be an ambassador for the area and represent Northeast Wisconsin at the Miss Wisconsin and Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen Competitions in June – the state finals for Miss America & Miss America’s Outstanding Teen!
Founded in 2014, the Miss Harbor Cities Competition is an all-volunteer, not for profit scholarship program and is open to women ages 17 to 25, and the Teen competition is open to women ages 13 to 17. Participants must live, work, or attend school full time in the state of Wisconsin.
The Miss Harbor Cities Scholarship Competition provides opportunities for women to make a difference in their community and promote a platform they believe in. This program helps women to develop professional skills and their futures, while providing scholarship money to further their education. The Outstanding Teen Pageant encourages positive achievement while helping to nurture and build the scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living, and community involvement of our youth.
With competitions in academics, community service, fitness, talent, and interview, the Miss America Preliminary Programs give contestants skills and confidence to shine in other areas of life including job interview and performance, leadership, and personal health.
More information and applications can be found at missharborcities.org and are due February 16, 2019.
