Chilton County’s annual Miss YMCA Pageant will be held Saturday, April 14 instead of Saturday, March 3.

“We’re moving the pageant so as not to conflict with other fundraising pageants that we know of,” YMCA Director Mary Beth Wyatt said. “We feel that you should support other area events and things.”

All proceeds from the pageant benefit YMCA Strong Kids, an annual fundraising campaign focused on providing scholarships to children whose families cannot pay for them to participate in YMCA programs.

The entry fee for entering the pageant and photogenic contest is $45. The pageant-only fee is $35, and the photogenic-only fee is $15.

“We do a ‘Baby Miss’ all the way through seniors in high school,” Wyatt said.

Registration is open until March 30. A parents’ meeting about the pageant will be held April 9.
