The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program is a non-profit corporation established solely to provide contestants with the opportunity to enhance their professional and education goals, and to achieve those pursuits with the assistance of monetary grants and awards. The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program is an official preliminary competition for the Miss Oregon Scholarship program, a part of the Miss America Organization, the world’s leading scholarship provider for women. In 2018 the Miss Clatsop County Organization made available over $7000 in scholarships to local women.
The Miss Clatsop County Program is scheduled for Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Seaside Convention Center. Teen & Miss Contestants are judged in interview, talent, physical fitness, evening wear and on-stage question. Deadline to enter is December 1, 2018. Winners will move on to represent our area at the Miss Oregon pageant in June 2019 with the possibility of moving to the National competitions.
In addition to the Miss and Teen divisions, the Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program supports a Princess program which is a mentoring program for young ladies ages 6 to 12. For younger participants, the emphasis is on citizenship, leadership, and volunteerism. A $75.00 participation fee is requested for those participating in the Princess program. At a random drawing, one lucky princess will become the official Princess for the Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program for the year and be sponsored at the Miss Oregon pageant with a possibility to move on to Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Program in Orlando, Florida. Please contact our princess coordinator Mariah Collins at 362-315-5883 or download the application on our website.
The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program is run solely by volunteers. We are actively seeking individuals interested in starting a program in Tillamook and Columbia Counties. To make a positive difference in our community and in the lives of young women, consider spending your time helping out with the program this year.
