Grant Township Pageant is preparing for the 2012 Pageant at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 22. Big Hollow Middle School, 6051 W Nippersink Road, Ingleside, is hosting this event for the township. Tickets are $5 per person and kids 5 and younger are free. There will be a chance to win one of the door prizes.
Each of the queens will be ambassadors for the township in various events during their year. Each of the contestants will have the opportunity to compete in the Lake County Fair Pageant during the Lake County Fair this July. In January 2012, Brittani Schisler was crowned Miss Illinois County Fair Queen. Schisler was Miss Grant Township Queen for 2007.
Thirty-one girls have signed up for one of four titles: Ages 6-8 compete for Little Miss, ages 9-12 for Junior Miss, ages 13-15 for Teen Miss and ages 16-19 for Miss Grant Township. Each of the contestants will be judged in four categories that include a personal interview, fair wear and speech presentation, formalwear and an impromptu Q-and-A session.
This pageant is open to all girls living the Grant Community High School District, which includes Fox Lake, Ingleside, Spring Grove, Round Lake and Lake Villa.
The current Queens are Little Miss Madison Point, Junior Miss Lainie Noda, Teen Miss Katie Rehling and Miss Samantha Murphey.
