Miss Maryland co-hosting scholarship pageant this weekend

22nd annual event Saturday at ACM

CUMBERLAND — Miss Maryland Lindsay Staniszewski will co-host the 22nd annual Miss and Teen Allegany County and Cumberland Scholarship Pageant Saturday evening along with local titleholders Miss Allegany County Stephanie Kelman, Miss Cumberland Christina Denny and Miss Allegany County Outstanding Teen Hollie Robertson.

The event will be held at the Allegany College of Maryland theater at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the door.

Using her voice as Miss Maryland, Staniszewski works daily to promote her platform, Beyond Beauty for Girls. As an official ambassador for The Confidence Coalition and advocate for the Girl Scouts of the USA, she enjoys sharing her passion for building self-esteem in girls and inspiring young women to achieve their goals.

Her love of connecting with people and sharing her talents has allowed Staniszewski to involve herself with many charities and nonprofit organizations across the state, including her work with the Queen for a Day organization and the Children’s Miracle Network, for which she has helped raise funds for terminally ill children in hospitals across the region. In January, she was recognized as a quality of life finalist by the Miss America Organization.

After a successful year for the program, organizers are excited to welcome a new group of young women into the program and supporting their educational pursuits. During the 2010 Miss Maryland pageant, Robertson was named first runner-up to Miss Maryland Outstanding Teen. Denny and Miss Cumberland Outstanding Teen Sara King were awarded top 10 semi-finalist awards and Kelman was named a top 10 semi-finalist as well as a newcomer talent award winner.

The Miss Allegany County and Miss Cumberland pageant as well as the Miss Allegany County Outstanding Teen and Miss Cumberland Outstanding Teen pageant are official preliminaries of the Miss Maryland and the Miss America Organizations.

The Miss America Organization is the nation’s leading achievement program and the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. The evening’s onstage competition will feature the miss contestants in evening wear, swimsuit, onstage question and talent while the teen contestants will be featured in sportswear, evening wear, onstage question and talent.

Each group of contestants will compete in interview competition prior to the onstage competition. For the second year, the contestants will be escorted by the Miss Allegany County and Miss Cumberland princesses.

The program is sponsored by Bill Miller Equipment.
