Forty-one of Mississippi's brightest young ladies were in Meridian Saturday to learn about Junior Miss Week 2005. The workshop was at The Quality Inn of Meridian.
While in Meridian, the group toured the Hamasa Temple Theater, site of the 2005 Mississippi Junior Miss Program.
Mississippi's Junior Miss 2004 Christina Myers of Madison County was on hand to give this year's contestants an insider's view of the week's activities.
The 48th Annual Mississippi's Junior Miss Program will be held July 29-31 at the Hamasa Temple Theater. The preliminary competition will be Thursday and Friday, July 29 and July 30, at 7:30 p.m. The final night of competition will be July 31, with the curtain rising at 8 p.m.
One talented young woman will walk away with the title of Mississippi's Junior Miss 2005 and a $7,000 cash scholarship to use at the college or university of her choice. In all, the Mississippi Junior Miss program will award $27,000 in cash scholarships during the three nights of competition.
Last year, Myers, Madison County's Junior Miss, took the title of Mississippi's Junior Miss 2004 and a total of $7,000 in cash scholarships. She was awarded a $1,000 Mississippi Coca-Cola Bottlers scholarship, the Overall Talent award and the Overall Poise award.
Myers will represent Mississippi in the national finals in Mobile, Ala., June 23, 24 and 26, where she will compete for the title of America's Junior Miss 2004 and more than $175,000 in cash scholarships.
National sponsors of America's Junior Miss include Coca-Cola, Tyson Foods, Inc., SeaWorld and Busch Gardens. National category sponsors include The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, Terminix, Bally Total Fitness, Mobile Gas and Regions Bank. Governmental support is furnished by the City of Mobile, Mobile County and the State of Alabama, with special support from the Mobile Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
