LIBERTY - A dozen young women are seeking the title of the 2005 Casey County Junior Miss in the 18th scholarship program. They will compete at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Casey County High School gymnasium. Admission is $5.
"This is the largest group of girls we've had in the competition," said Rita Sweeney, program chairman.
Judging will be on interviews, talent, scholastics, fitness and self expression. The contestants will perform a fitness segment. The winner will receive $1,200, and the four runners-up also will receive cash prizes.
Entertainment will be provided by Millie Emerson Atherton, a 1995 Junior Miss talent winner, singer McKinsey Campbell, and the Casey County High School dance team.
The new Casey Junior Miss will represent the county in the state competition in January in Lexington.
The 12 contestants, listed below with parents and talent, are:
Beth Bates, James and Gladys Bates, color guard.
Heather Cundiff, Ken and Tishana Cundiff, piano.
