For hopeful entrants into the 2013 Outlook Calendar Girl Pageant, the time left to throw their names in the hat is quickly winding down.

Applications are still being accepted through 5 p.m on Friday, Dec. 28 and the pageant will be held on Jan. 12-13 in the Benjamin Russell High School auditorium.

Pageant director Kim Waldrep said that there are numerous categories so girls of almost any age are eligible to compete.

Girls age four through second grade are eligible to compete for the Petite Miss title. The Little Miss title will be competed for by third through sixth graders.

Seventh, eighth and ninth graders will vie for the Junior Miss crown, and high school sophomores, juniors and seniors will contest for Miss Outlook.

“The winner of the Miss Outlook title will win $150 and a full scholarship to CACC (Central Alabama Community College),” Waldrep said.  “Every contestant will win something, and they’ll be in a calendar.”

Runners-up for the “Miss” titles receive the season titles: Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Other categories that will be awarded include Miss Congeniality, Miss Photogenic, Miss Exemplary, Miss Party Dress and Miss Sportswear.

According to Waldrep, those interested can benefit from the pageant experience in more ways than just winning prizes.

“It helps with people skills and helps to boost confidence,” Waldrep said.

The entry fee for the pageant is $150. Each contestant can have up to two sponsors, and the sponsor(s) are allowed to pay their respective contestant’s entry fee.

Applications are still being accepted through 5 p.m on Friday, Dec. 28 and the pageant will be held on Jan. 12-13 in the Benjamin Russell High School auditorium.
