Applications for this year's pageant will be available by contacting the director at email@example.com after April 1.
Young women who reside in Illinois are invited to participate and compete in the Miss HerrinFesta Italiana Scholarship Pageant for scholarships. This event is the largest scholarship pageant of its kind in Southern Illinois.
Entry forms are also available at the Herrin Chamber of Commerce, Joyce's Boutique & The Pageant Room, or by contacting the director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All participants will compete in the areas of swimwear (must be a one-piece swimsuit), cocktail attire (which may be a short dress or a dressy jumpsuit, similar to attire that might be worn to homecoming dance), and evening gown (must be floor length, as the contestants are already being featured in separate cocktail wear attire.) Contestants may additionally compete in an on-stage interview with the Master of Ceremonies. No talent is necessary or required. Finalists will also compete in an on-stage fishbowl question. Contestants may elect to enter an optional category of Photogenic by submitting a photograph of their choice. Additional information will be provided to entrants.
