Every year Carbon County picks a young lady to help represent the Castle Valley, and this year it will be no different, as the Miss Carbon County Pageant rapidly approaches. Scheduled for Sept. 26, at the Carbon County Events Center the pageant has five contenders. And the competition is looking fierce.

"It's all local girls competing," said Becky Noyes the new director of the pageant. "(competition) categories include talents, lifestyle and fitness."

The competing ladies: Ariel Dye, Kelli Dougal, La Tricia Pierce, Monnica Rich, and Whitney Ison are all from Carbon County with each possessing a musical talent of either, piano, dancing or singing.

This year's theme was delegated by Miss Carbon County (Kristena Scow) and is inspired by Candy Land which comes from her previous experience with other pageants around the state. Scow indicated that she herself is somewhat new to pageants because her experience participating only started last year after one of her friends got her interested.

"It was kind of spur of the moment for me, but a lot of people don't understand what its all about," said Scow. "It was a big learning experience."

Besides the honor of carrying the title of Miss Carbon County, the winner will likely receive a CEU scholarship as well as be able to compete in Miss Utah and possibly even the Miss America pageants. Last year the Carbon pageant was able to give Scow a $2,000 scholarship to attend the CEU nursing program. Standards set for competitors are the same as Miss America; entrants must be at least a senior in high school and 17 years old, but no older than 23.

The competition's finer points include the lifestyle and fitness sections entailing the participants to exert confidence because they must model in swimsuits and show that they are physically fit. The talent section, as mentioned, are all musical this year.

All the young ladies entered are from Price.

As a new director of the pageant, Noyes wants to encourage the community to come and support the event because as of late it has been in need of attention.

"We would like to re-build and make the title build and make the title of Miss Carbon County a prestigious goal for the young women of the area," wrote Noyes via an e-mail.

This year being Noyes' first, she was unable coordinate the pageant with the county fair, but next year she is planning to do that. She is also looking for other ways to improve the pageant.

The competition will be at 7 p.m. at the Carbon County Events Center on Sept. 26.

When asked about advice for this year's pageant entrees, Scow who is thinking about doing the Miss CEU pageant this year, said simply "You get out of it what you put in to it."
