Tickets to the dinner are $50 if available and come with a $20 reserved ticket to the show Saturday night. Reserved tickets are not for sale.

Saturday’s program will feature outgoing titleholders, Miss Clatsop County Ryen Buys, Miss North Tess Rund, Miss Clatsop County’s Outstanding Teen Caitlin Hillman, Miss North Coast’s Outstanding Teen Nikkole Sasso, Miss Columbia-Pacific’s Outstanding Teen Taryn Miller, as well as our very own Miss Oregon 2016 Alexis Mather of Astoria.

The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Pageant is the official preliminary competition of the Miss Oregon Scholarship Program and is part of the Miss America Organization, the world’s leading scholarship provider for women. The winners will go on to represent the county at the State pageant in June in Seaside. A random draw by 2016 Miss Clatsop County’s Princess Alissa Betts Phillips and 2016 Miss North Coast’s Princess Savana Pedraza from 16 princesses will also take place sending 1 luck girl to the Miss Oregon stage.

The Miss America Organization is a non-profit corporation established solely to provide contestants with the opportunity to enhance their professional and education goals, and to achieve those pursuits with the assistance of monetary grants and awards.

The Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program is run solely by volunteers. To make a positive difference in our community and in the lives of young women, consider spending your time helping out with the program.
