January 15, 2014 (San Diego’s East County) -- On March 7, the cities of La Mesa and Santee will hold their annual Miss La Mesa and Miss Santee Pageants. Pageant organizers are currently seeking outgoing residents ages 13-26 to participate in a program that has been a tradition in the cities since the late 1960’s and includes a mentoring program for young women. The pageants are sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce and focus on community service.
The 2014 titleholders will all receive scholarships which have been funded through past local talent and fashion show fundraising events.
The contestants will be scored on personal interview, speech, poise and personality, sportswear, evening gown and an on stage question. There is no swimsuit competition.
