Union, Rutherford, Catawba, Caldwell, Burke, and Polk counties.
program is committed to promoting the four principles of Miss America: Service, Scholarship, Style,

The people who
serve on our pageant committee are volunteers committed to
providing scholarship opportunities and enriching the lives of young women in our community. The cash and
in-kind scholarships made available to this year's contestants totaled more than $146,000.
We sponsor the Miss Gastonia Scholarship Pageant and the Miss Gastonia’s Outstanding
Teen Pageant each summer. The pageants are "stacked"
pageants, which means two winners are crowned – Miss Gastonia and Miss Gaston County and Miss Gastonia’s
Outstanding Teen and Miss Gaston County’s Outstanding Teen.
The four titleholders advance to the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant and the Miss North Carolina’s
Outstanding Teen Pageant held in Raleigh in June.

pageant program ...
