The Miss Liberty County Forestry Pageant will be Feb. 18 at the restored Glennville City Auditorium.
The pageant is open to girls 24 and younger. The teen and miss categories are judged on interview, public speaking and overall appearance.
Sherry Long recently was appointed as the new director for the pageant by the Georgia Forestry Pageant and Educational Association Inc. She brings more than 10 years of pageant experience to the Liberty County Forestry Pageant. She is also a certified judge.
The winners of the Miss Liberty County Forestry Pageant will receive their entry fees paid to the Miss Georgia Forestry Pageant to represent Liberty County and, if there are enough participants, a scholarship to be received at the end of their reign.
The local winners will participate in many activities during their reign, including parades, festivals and other events. When the local winners go to the state pageant in Tifton, they will participate in many formal and informal activities, including a parade, tree farm tour and a visit to the Agrirama.
This year, a formal ball will be held for the teen and miss contestants.
The Miss Georgia Forestry State winner will receive a scholarship, crown, rhinestone-studded sash, Miss Georgia Forestry pin, Miss Georgia Forestry diamond and emerald ring, silver engraved tray, flowers, pictures and interviews in five national magazines and gifts worth more than $2,000.
Each of the younger queens will receive a crown, rhinestone-studded sash, crowning pin, silver engraved tray, flowers and gifts worth more than $2,000.
