Licking County DYW 2017

Exciting month for the one of the Dear girls. This month Hannah will be representing Licking County in the Distinguished Young Women Competition.  This was formally known as Jr. Miss competition several years ago.  I wanted to compete when I was a senior in high school, but was unable to. I know many people who competed in local and state competition in Mississippi. I was a big deal if you won the local “pageant”.  In the state of Ohio there are three local competitions to qualify for the state competition – Vinton County, Knox County, and Ohio-at-Large.  Hannah competed in the Ohio-at-Large this past November and qualified to move on to state.  It is quite and honor to be selected.

This month she will compete in Mt.Vernon, OH in the state competition. She will compete in interview, talent, scholarship, self-expression, and physical fitness. She will be playing her Rachmaninoff on the piano for her talent. This is a great opportunity to meet other girls from across the state and earn scholarship money for college.  If you would like to come support her on Feb 24th & 25th, tickets are available for purchase at We are looking forward to seeing her shine.
