PALMDALE – Plans are underway for the second annual Miss Latina AV pageant, to be held Sunday, June 7.
Contestants are being sought to compete in the pageant, themed “Premios Senorita Latina.”
“Some may ask, ‘Why have a pageant that highlights Latina culture?’ It’s all part of being proud and sharing the rich culture of our ancestries and community within the Antelope Valley,” stated Pageant Coordinator Waunette Cullors. “[The] pageant experience is unlike any other local community queen’s experience. The ladies focus on culture, history, education and community during the pageant experience and during their reign.”
The second annual Miss Latina AV pageant is open to young ladies, between the ages of 4 and 18, who reside within the Antelope Valley and have a willingness to promote Latina culture and mentor youth, according to Cullors.
“The contestants will be given etiquette lessons, speech coaching, participate in a Cinco de Mayo Parade, a Sweet Frog fundraiser and receive a trophy, sash and gain a memorable experience,” stated Cullors.
The fee is $30 and contestant applications must be received by Tuesday, April 21, 2015.
