The Miss Apple Blossom Festival Pageant Scholarship Program announces its 2016 scholarship competitions for ladies in two divisions: Miss (ages 17-24), and Teen (ages 13-17). The Miss Apple Blossom Festival Pageant, presented by Loudoun Mutual Insurance, will be held on November 21, 2015 at Daniel Morgan Middle School in Winchester.
The Miss Apple Blossom Festival is an official preliminary to the Miss Virginia and Miss America Organization, and our Miss and Teen titleholders advance to compete in the Miss Virginia Pageant. The state competition provides more opportunity to win scholarships, and is held in Roanoke, Virginia in June 2016. We are so proud of our 2015 titleholders – Katie Pimblett, our Miss Apple Blossom Festival, was 3rd runner up at Miss Virginia and the recipient of the Miss America Community Service Award! Jessalyn Hayes and Haylee Landry were outstanding representatives in the Teen and Teen-in-Training programs!
Miss Apple Blossom Festival 2016 will receive a substantial college scholarship along with multiple awards and services, a year’s schedule of community service appearances, and the chance to compete for additional scholarship awards in the Miss Virginia and possibly Miss America Scholarship Programs. Miss Apple Blossom Festival is also the Official Hostess for the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival® and will make multiple official celebrity appearances during a portion of the 2016 Festival which will be held from Friday, April 22nd through Sunday, May 1st, 2016. Miss Apple Blossom Outstanding Teen will receive a scholarship award, and the state entry fee of $395 will be paid to compete for the Miss Virginia competition in June. Monies for the scholarships come from our presenting sponsor Loudoun Mutual Insurance and many other event and program sponsors which are pivotal to our success.
The deadline to enter is November 12, 2015. Please note there is no pre-teen or teen-in-training program this year.
