Mississippi's Junior Miss 2004 Christina Myers has taken another step in her quest for the title of America's Junior Miss.
Myers, Madison County's Junior Miss, is among the Top 10 finalists at the national program currently being held at the Mobile Civic Center Theater in Mobile, Ala. Myers was chosen to represent Mississippi last July during the state program in Meridian at The Temple Theatre. She is the daughter of Bobbie Jo and Brad Myers of Ridgeland.
The announcement of the top 10 finalists took place in an invitation-only event Thursday. All 50 contestants gathered on a closed set with a camera crew capturing the moment.
Parents and state chairmen watched via a live feed as Nicky Brown, host of the America's Junior Miss national finals, named the finalists.
The other finalists include: Arkansas' Junior Miss, Tara Perry; California's Junior Miss, Lisa Yi; Kentucky's Junior Miss, Misty Wright; Massachusetts' Junior Miss, Meghan Joyce; North
Carolina's Junior Miss, Lauren Melton; South
Carolina's Junior Miss, Aundrea Cook; Texas' Junior Miss, Shannon Essenpreis; Utah's Junior Miss, Libby Frandsen; and Wisconsin's Junior Miss, Sopen Shah.
Myers will have the chance to win a portion of the more than $100,000 in cash scholarships awarded during the competition including the $50,000 scholarship given to the winner.
The competition will continue tonight at 7 p.m. at the Mobile Civic Center Theater. The 47th Annual AJM National Finals will air July 3 at 8 p.m. on PAX.
