Allen Events Center welcomes Miss Texas
July 3, 2013 by Sarah
The Allen Events Center in Texas is once again welcoming contestants and spectators of the Miss Texas Pageant, along with Miss Teen Texas. The events will take place from Saturday 29 June to 7 July this year. The winner of the competition will go forward to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant. The annual event is extremely popular, although the local poster printing services of local print companies are required to help promote the event and provide details.
It will be the second year in a row that the event is being held at the Allen Events Center. According to the spokeswoman for The Miss Texas Pageant, Valerie Bell, the facilities available in Allen are of the highest quality and the people have been welcoming. The Miss America Program offers scholarships to women worldwide. The competition started in 1921, with the pageant becoming a tradition in America, as girls from all the states competing to win the Miss America title. The first scholarship was offered by the non-profit organization in 1945, and today provides cash of over $45 million and assistance with a scholarship for tuition. The current Miss Texas has now been able to afford law school, thanks to assistance from the program.
The Miss Texas Pageant receives a lot of sponsorship from local restaurants and shops in the area, which Bell says the organization is grateful for. The finals for the Teen finals will take place on Friday night, while the finals for the Miss Texas finals will be held on the Saturday evening.
