Miss MWV Teen May 8th

The 2022 Miss Mount Washington Valley Teen Scholarship Program will be held on Sunday, May 8 at
Theater in the Wood, in Intervale, beginning at 4:00pm. This year marks the 33rd anniversary of the
event.

The Miss Bartlett Pageants were started in 1990, in celebration of Bartlett’s 200th Birthday. The goal
was to produce an event where young ladies could learn and practice valuable life skills while
participating in the excitement generated by a Pageant. This is NOT a beauty pageant!! Contestants are
judged on their poise, confidence, public speaking and interview abilities. There is an optional talent
competition, with a separate panel of judges, but there is NO swimsuit competition.

In 1995, the event was expanded to include young ladies from throughout the Mount Washington
Valley. Our participants now encompass those towns whose students attend Kennett High School and
Fryeburg Academy. Scholarship money is awarded to the top three finishers, and for outstanding
salesmanship. This year we will award nearly $2000.00 to those fortunate teens for their college
careers. That will bring the total money won by contestants since we began this program to over
$55,000.00. To date, 187 teens have participated in this program. This number does not reflect the
many who have joined us year after year. Among our past participants are business owners, teachers,
military officers, hair stylists, medical professionals, mothers, and so much more…

There are four separate areas of judging involved in the selection of a Queen. Ten percent of the score
is accumulated during the preparation events of the Pageant. Points are earned for meeting paperwork
and advertising deadlines, attending rehearsals, assisting with fund-raising, etc.

Personal interview accounts for 30% of each contestant’s overall score. Each will meet with our panel
of judges in a setting much like a job interview. She is asked questions about herself and her interests.
The judges are watching for good posture, eye contact and speaking ability.

Following the interviews, the contestants present their public speaking. Each speaks about herself, into
a microphone, to the judges and other contestants, making her introduction and telling about herself.
This area also accounts for 30% of the overall score.

The final 30% of the score is awarded in the afternoon’s formal wear competition, the only portion that
is open to any members of the public. Each contestant will present in formal attire for the audience and
the judges. She will introduce herself and perform a short runway walk. The judges will be watching the
grace, poise and confidence exhibited by each of the contestants.

The 2022 Mount Washington Valley Teen Scholarship Program is presented by Mount Washington
Valley Promotions and hosted by Theater in the Wood. Sponsors are the UPS Store of North Conway,
Lifestar EMS, Showcase Events, and Lisa DuFault Photography.

Tickets are only $5.00 each and the money goes into the Scholarship Account. Check Lisa Valleypromos
