South Florida Fair Scholarship Pageant

 

The Miss South Florida Fair competition dates all the wayback to the 1950’s. Over the years, the event has provided women the opportunity to win financial assistance as a means of achieving their educational goals. The pageant has also enhanced career opportunities and produced role models representing positive American values. Past winners have promoted goodwill and the spirit of civic volunteerism.
Miss South Florida Fair will have the extra benefit of carrying her crown further.  Winner advances to the Miss Florida Pageant to be held in St. Petersburg in the month of July, 2015. There, she will have the opportunity to receive additional scholarship funds and compete for the privilege of representing the Sunshine State in the Miss America Pageant.
