Scholarships for Your Students: Seeking Participants
The Miss Tennessee’s Outstanding Teen Program is seeking candidates to compete in local competitions. Do you know of any community-minded, intelligent, and talented young women from your school who might be interested in competing? Over $9000 in college scholarships are available this year to state candidates including a $3,500 scholarship and fabulous in-kind scholarships for our Miss Tennessee’s Outstanding Teen winner to the University of Alabama, Troy University, and more! Keep in mind that candidates are not judged on physical beauty and this is not a pageant. While young women who normally compete in pageants are sure to be interested, consider reaching out to your top academic students, those who participate in drama club/theater, and those interested in debate and social issues. They all would thrive in our program!
Please invite any young woman who might be interested to our free informational Zoom meeting on Monday night, September 12 at 7:00 pm central. The link to join can be found at misstennessee.org/compete. Also please share the attached document with them or send them to misstennessee.org/compete. I am happy to answer any questions they have via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (205) 915-7079.
