I really feel like summer has arrived. Finally! Other than the warmer temperatures, Oshkosh gets into full swing starting with the Miss Wisconsin scholarship pageant.
We are very excited that the Miss Wisconsin judges will be staying with us this year. They will have privacy of the entire inn to themselves for business and hopefully some relaxing time as well. Several of these judges have spent years in the pageant industry judging, volunteering, competing and or serving on the scholarship committee. They come from all over the country and we couldn’t be more excited that they are here with us.
The Miss Wisconsin competition will represent women from Wisconsin who will make their way to the Miss America pageant. Winning the competition is not only a great milestone, it also provides the winner with a chance to get out and advocate for a cause that she feels very strongly about. Last year’s winner, Kate Gorman, promoted her platform ‘Take a Healthy Bite out of Childhood Hunger’ which helped to advocate for better nutritional habits. All the ladies receive an incremental amount of funding for the school of their choice for the effort they put forth for the show. Scholarships are given out by the Miss Wisconsin Scholarship Foundation as well as by other sponsors that are proud supporters of the event. The pageant will be taking place in Oshkosh, at the Alberta Kimball Auditorium, starting June 19th - 22nd.
