The Miss La Paz County Scholarship pageant will be held onstage during the La Paz County Fair on March 9. Miss La Paz County Billie McCall and Miss La Paz County’s Outstanding Teen, Marilyn Lomayesva, will be turning over their crowns to their successors.

Contestants are being sought for the Miss La Paz County pageant. For young women who are interested in competing, there will be an informational meeting at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 26 at Players Ninth Street Youth Center, which is located on 9th Street off Pop Harvey Park between Mohave and Navajo Avenues.

For those girls who may be interested in pageants but who are too young to compete, there is Miss La Paz County’s Princess Program. It’s open to girls ages 5 to 12. This program is described as not a pageant, but an opportunity for girls to dress up, appear on stage, and get a taste of the pageant experience. They will also get to be crowned a princess.

The entry fee is $100. For more information on the Princess program, contact Raquel Reyna at 928-304-3618.
