Area resident to compete in local pageant

Thursday, December 1, 2011

TERRE HAUTE -- Eight local women will compete Saturday for the titles of Miss Crossroads to America and Miss Crossroads to America Outstanding Teen 2012.

The titles are preliminary scholarship pageants to the Miss Indiana and Miss America Scholarship organizations.

The pageant will take place at 4 p.m., at Terre Haute South High School.

Admission is $7, and all proceeds will go toward the state preparation for the new representatives.

Eligible women must live, work or attend school in Clay, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion or Vigo counties.

The Miss contestants are Alanna Mossell and Ashley Clarke, both from Indiana State University, and Kayla Mann from Ivy Tech Community College, and Lauren Mnayarji from Terre Haute South High School.

Clarke is a 2009 graduate of Northview High School.

The teen contestants include Terre Haute South High School's Ashley Logan, Samantha Ivaturi, Shannon McPike and Tialy Thompson.

Miss Crossroads to America and Miss Crossroads to America Outstanding Teen 2012 will have access to in-kind scholarships from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Ivy Tech Community College or Indiana State University and the right to represent at the Miss Indiana Scholarship Pageant at the Zionsville Performing Arts Center in June 2012, with the hope of competing at Miss America and Miss America Outstanding Teen Scholarship pageants.

The Miss America Scholarship Organization made $45 million available in scholarships to nearly 7,000 women.

The program exists to provide personal and professional opportunities for young women to promote their voices in culture, politics and the community.

The program provides a forum for today's young women to express their viewpoints, talents and accomplishments to audiences during the telecast and to the public during the ensuing year.
