That time of year has arrived again when Miss Millersville seeks contestants for the upcoming year. This year’s event, which will be held on March 6, is looking for girls to represent their organizations in this threepart campus friendly competition. Contestants will be judged in the categories of talent, beachwear and question & answer.
This year’s chair of the event, Elizabeth Shaw, began preparations for this annual event early on to ensure for a successful turn out. “I began planning in the beginning of November, despite the event being in March. It’s important to be on top of things, especially with publicity of Miss Millersville,” explained Shaw.
Shaw has previous experience with the execution of this event when she shadowed last year’s chair, Kim Landis. “I helped from the beginning stages of planning until the actual event and I had a blast.” Shaw added, “I loved being able to interact with all of the contestants throughout the time we had together. It’s so nice to watch all the girls become friends so quickly.”
Similar to last year’s event, the girls will participate in a choreographed opening number. Shaw will be guiding the contestants throughout the dance steps. “Don’t worry about having two left feet. This event is all about having fun!” she shared. She attributes the most difficult of planning thus far to the coordination of schedules and ensuring that all participants and organizers are at one place at the same time.
Sign ups can be found in the Communication Equipment Room in Bassler Hall (Hash Bulding). This is located across from the TV studio. There will be a meeting for all girls interested on Wednesday, December 5 at 8 p.m. in the Bassler Hall TV studio.
