Attention all Destin young ladies! Applications are being accepted for the Miss Destin Pageant. The deadline for entries is Friday, March 10. This year's pageant is going to be loads of fun and something you won't want to miss.

The pageant is not a beauty contest, the young lady who receives the title of Miss Destin is judged on her grade point average, school and community involvement and communication skills. She serves as a public figure throughout the year, representing Destin at many functions, including the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo.

Destin resident girls between the ages of 16 and 19 vie for the title of Miss Destin, which among other things provides a $2,000 cash scholarship. Additional scholarship moneys are awarded to runners-up.

Preceding the actual pageant, there are several fun-filled social events planned so that the contestants and their parents can meet with pageant officials and judges. They include a harbor cruise aboard the Southern Star on March 27. The 2017 Miss Destin Pageant will be held Saturday, April 8, at the Destin Community Center.

Applications are available online at or at the Destin Community Center, Destin Fishing Rodeo Office or you may phone 850-837-6734 to receive one by mail.

All contestants must be between the ages of 16 and 19 on the day of the contest, must have a 32540, 32541 or 32550 zip code, be single and never married, and must live within the boundaries of the Destin Bridge, South shore of Choctawhatchee Bay, Eastern boundaries of Sandestin and the Gulf of Mexico.

Join the fun! Get your application today! For more information, call the Rodeo office at 850-837-6734.
