Talent, evening wear and fitness wear will be on display as seventeen contestants compete in next month’s Miss Sanilac County and Miss Sanilac County Outstanding Teen Pageant.

There are eleven contestants for Miss Sanilac, and six for Miss Outstanding Teen.

The program that is part of the Miss America and Miss Michigan Pageant System will be held Saturday, Nov. 7, 6 p.m., at Maple Valley School, 138 Maple Valley St., Sandusky.

Tickets will be available at the door for $15. Doors open at 5 p.m. No advanced sales.

“Two for one,” said Jay Williams, executive director of the Miss Sanilac County Scholarship Program. For one ticket, you can watch both pageants.

“Come out and cheer your favorite,” said Williams.

The Miss Sanilac pageant is for ladies ages 17 to 24, while Miss Teen is from 13 to 17. Depending on birth date and grade-level in high school, a 17-year-old is eligible for either Miss Teen or Miss Sanilac.

A panel of judges will decide the winners. In addition to talent, evening wear and fitness wear, contestants will answer an on-stage question, and have personal interviews with the judges prior to the evening program.

The winners will advance to the Miss Michigan and Miss Outstanding Teen contests in June, 2016, in Muskegon.

The concession stand for the Nov. 7 event will be handled by the Sandusky High School Band.

New this year is an afterglow party at the Sandusky DQ Grill & Chill restaurant following the show, where you meet the contestants.
