Miss Vermont Scholarship Organization Seeks Applicants | New
BURLINGTON – 100 years to the day after Margaret Gorman became the very first woman to be crowned Miss America, the Miss Vermont Scholarship Organization (MVSO) is inviting young women from across Green Mountain State to participate in the 100e anniversary as contestants in our upcoming Miss Vermont scholarship competition.
Miss Vermont and Miss Vermont’s Outstanding Teen 2022 will receive scholarships, represent the state in Miss America and Miss America’s Outstanding Teen pageant, and spend the year making community appearances throughout Vermont.
Miss Vermont 2015 Alayna Westcom won over $ 20,000 in scholarships during her competition period. âThe scholarships I received as Miss Vermont helped pay for my undergraduate education fees, which allowed me to continue my education,â said Westcom, who currently attends the faculty of medicine from the Larner College of Medicine at UVM. âDeeper for me, it was the skills I acquired that gave me the confidence to speak with patients and colleagues. I will always be grateful for the financial support and opportunities I received as Miss Vermont. “
To be able to compete for the title of Miss Vermont, you must be between 18 and 26 years old and:
* be a US citizen who has resided in Vermont OR
* be registered and attend a school in Vermont OR
* work full time in Vermont for 6 months prior to competition.
Adolescent applicants must be between 13 and 18 years old.
âOne of the exciting opportunities to register to participate in the program is the ability to start immediately as a local representative,â said Darcie Fisher, Executive Director of MVSO. “Teens and Miss contestants can make appearances and wear the region scarf they represent in the months leading up to the 2022 contest.”
Miss Vermont 2021 Danielle Morse was Miss Addison County 2021 before being named current Miss Vermont. âThe time I spent as Miss Addison County was very special to me,â said Morse. âI never knew if I would be Miss Vermont, but I knew I had this platform and this opportunity as the local title holder to make a change. While I might not have needed the belt to do these things, being Miss Addison County encouraged me to pursue my dream of being Miss Vermont.
Miss America began in 1921 as a bathing beauty pageant founded by businessmen in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to extend the summer tourist season beyond Labor Day. Over the past 100 years, it has grown to become the largest provider of scholarships for women around the world. Miss Vermont will celebrate the coronation of 77e Miss Vermont next spring.
