We have seven third grade girls working on the platform Junior. Miss has, Be your Best Self. The program will award more than $2,500 in college scholarships this year. The committee would like to thank all the people and local businesses for their monetary and gifts donations to the program, Spring said. The program has awarded over $40,000 over the years.

The contestants and little sisters are also selling raffle tickets for prizes to be drawn the night of the show. Contestants will be judged on physical fitness, self expression, talent, scholastic achievement and individual interviews with judges. The winner will represent Crown Point in the state Junior Miss program to be held in Buffalo. The New York State winner advances to the national Junior Miss program in Mobile, Ala., next June.
