SELMA — Now is the time to enter in the Miss Central Alabama Beauty Pageant, sponsored by the Selma Lions Club and the Central Alabama Fair.

“Miss Central Alabama is an excellent opportunity for the girls to get to know girls who go to other schools who they may not know otherwise,” said Beth Pearce, pageant coordinator. “It’s a good opportunity to earn scholarship money. They can earn upwards of $500. It’s also a good opportunity because they can polish their interview skills, which are going to be very important later in life for jobs, to get into college and for scholarships.”

The pageant will be held at the Lions Fair Park, 2401 West Dallas Ave., on Oct. 5 at 7 p.m.

Miss Central Alabama Fair Association reserves the right to reject any contestant.
