This July, beautiful and talented women from across the state will compete for the title of Miss Arkansas.
Among these women will be ASU’s own Chelsea Treadway, a senior biology major, who was crowned Miss Arkansas State University on Feb. 15. However, she is not the only ASU student who will be competing for the crown.
In fact, there are five women from ASU, including Treadway, who will fight for the title. The students won in local preliminaries, which qualified them to compete in the Miss Arkansas pageant.
The additional ASU students competing are:
- Norma Lopez, a sophomore theater major, who was crowned Miss Batesville on Aug. 5, 2011.
- Ashley Gage, a sophomore early childhood education major, who was crowned Miss Crowley’s Ridge on Feb. 4.
- Maegan Inzer, a senior communication disorders major, who was crowned Miss Greater Jacksonville on Feb. 25.
- Last but not least is Mollie Parker, a freshman radio television major, who was crowned Miss Cotton Belle on March 10.
These young ladies are among the 48 contestants fighting for the crown July 11th – 14th at the Hot Springs Convention Center. They will compete in Interview, Talent, Lifestyle and Fitness in swimsuit, and Presence and Poise in evening gown. Each contestant also must discuss her chosen platform, a social or community issue of concern to herself and the society at large.
Over $75,000 in scholarships will be awarded, with the winner of the pageant will go on to represent Arkansas in the Miss America pageant. The reigning Miss Arkansas, Kristen Glover of Stuttgart, will be on hand each night of competition.
For the second year in a row, there will be free tickets for some students available at the Miss Arkansas pageant.
On July 13th and 14th, fraternity and sorority members will be able to watch the final night of preliminary competition and the crowning night for free. Greek members are asked to wear their letters or pin in order to gain complimentary admission.
A similar offer exists for junior high and high school spirit squads, who are invited to attend the first two nights of Preliminary competition for free. The squad members must arrive in uniform to get in for free.
Both groups are asked to check in between 6:30 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. each night to claim their free tickets. They are also asked to bring their support signs to hold up when cheering on their favorite contestants during competition each night. The show begins each night at 7:30 p.m.
