February 9, 2015 (San Diego’s Esat County)--On Friday, March 6, 2015 the cities of La Mesa and Santee will hold one of their most grand traditions, the 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 is an outstanding mentoring program for young women.  The pageants are sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce and focus on community service, networking, public speaking and interview skills.  There is no swimsuit competition!

Sponsor McWire Electric will be donating a $2,000 College Scholarship to Miss La Mesa 2015 and Miss Santee 2015. Miss Teen La Mesa and Miss Teen Santee will also receive a scholarship of $500 or more in addition to a generous prize package.

The contestants will be scored on personal interview, speech, poise and personality, evening gown, and on-stage impromptu question.  Pageant photographers will present the Miss Photogenic award, contestants will vote for the Miss Congeniality award and a local educator will choose a winner for our essay-writing contest.  Pageant winners will receive the once in a lifetime opportunity to serve as an ambassador for their city and attend grand openings, parades, summer concerts and chamber functions throughout the year. 

Interested contestants are encouraged to attend Orientation on Sunday February 8th at Santee City Hall building 8 from 12-4pm.  Contestants will be accepted until Sunday, February 15, 2015.  For additional information, including information on the Princess Program for girls’ ages 6-12, please contact pageant Director, Sierra Billock, at 619-672-0688 or visit
