Miss Stanton and Junior Miss Stanton
The Miss Stanton Scholarship Pageant is a long standing tradition that provides an opportunity for young ladies from the Central Montcalm School District to compete for the title of Miss Stanton and Jr. Miss Stanton. The pageant takes place in two phases: Private Interview and On-Stage Competition. The public is invited to join us on Thursday at 6:00 P.M. on the Main Stage in the Chemical Bank Parking lot on Main Street for the on-stage portion. That evening, our Miss Stanton candidates will compete in five categories: Athletic Wear, Platform, Talent, Formal Wear, and Final Question. Junior Miss candidates will compete in the following categories: Self Expression Wear, Favorite Quote, Formal Wear, and Final Question.
Miss Stanton and Jr. Miss Stanton will receive scholarships to Montcalm Community College, along with other prizes from local sponsors. They will be present at many events throughout Stanton Old Fashioned Days weekend and will help lead the Grand Parade on Saturday. These lucky young ladies will also fulfill their duties by representing Stanton throughout the year, attending several parades and festivals, as well as volunteering at many community events.
