Miss Mountainview Scholarship Pageants

Saturday, October 21, 2017

Miss Mountain View Scholarship Pageants is excited to announce that our pageant has moved to the fall time frame for next school year. We feel that this change in schedule will be more beneficial to the students and provide us with some opportunities that we have not had before. Miss Mountain View has a place for EVERY girl, and celebrates the diversity and uniqueness of our community. A Miss Mountain View girl grows in confidence, poise, and leadership through many opportunities to serve in our community and beyond. We also offer college scholarships to our Juniors and Seniors as they prepare for their next steps beyond high school. Once the pageant is concluded, ALL girls (contestants and winners) are invited to spend the remainder of the school year volunteering and serving with Miss Mountain View in various service projects, community events, and just some fun stuff too! All Gwinnett County students are encouraged to volunteer and serve in the community, so Miss Mountain View is the perfect organization to complete your hours with.

This year, we have listened to the wishes of our parents to pay only one fee instead of several small ones. Therefore, we are pleased to offer an all-inclusive pageant registration fee which includes the following:

Registration Fee ~ Pageant T-Shirt and/or Bow ~ 1 Pageant Program Book ~ 2 Photo Shoots (headshot for program book & Queens group shot after pageant) ~ 1 Photogenic Competition Photo Entry (you are responsible for your own photo shoot) ~ People’s Choice Competition ~ Sweetheart Competition
