    Deadline Approaching for Miss Cary-Grove Pageant Applications
    The Cary-Grove Area Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for the 2018 Miss Cary-Grove Business Scholarship Pageant. The pageant is open to women ages 16-21 who are Cary and Fox River Grove residents. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, February 23. The Chamber is also looking for Chamber members who would be interested in sponsoring a pageant contestant.
    “We have had so many amazing young women from our community involved over the years,” said pageant director Lisa Raupp of Mary Kay Cosmetics. “Each year they benefit from working with the female business leaders in the community who serve on the pageant committee. Our goal is to help these young women develop confidence and enhance their professional skills that will help them get into college and to pursue successful careers.”
    The pageant focuses on leadership, professionalism and public speaking skills. The process leading up to the pageant is designed to provide the contestants with communication and speaking skills, and increase their knowledge about local businesses. They are formally introduced to the business community and area leaders, get involved in community service, and are trained in speaking and presentation skills. The evening of the pageant the contestants participate in an evening gown competition, an interview session and give a live presentation about their business sponsor.
    The pageant will be held on Monday, May 14 at Cary-Grove High School and contestants are required to participate in a variety of events before that. Miss Cary-Grove will receive a scholarship of $2,000. Runners up will also receive scholarship monies. For an application or sponsorship information call the Cary-Grove Area Chamber office at (847) 639-2800 or visit www.carygrovechamber.com.|
