Re: “Musing over Miss Arkansas

Not only is Miss America the largest provider of scholarships to young women in the country, but it prepares these young women for situations they will encounter throughout their lives.
The Miss Arkansas pageant rewards women who strive to serve others above themselves, who donate their time to raise money for causes close to their hearts, and who are dedicated to setting goals for themselves and surpassing them. These wonderful young women spend months preparing for this "beauty pageant". But more importantly, they learn life lessons and formulate their own attitudes and opinions while preparing. Somer Allen spent 4 months overseas in Uganda in the months leading up to Miss Arkansas; talk about service before self.
Next time you grace the Miss Arkansas Scholarship pageant with your presence, take notice of the women behind the make up and glitter, because thats what really counts. Unfortunately there was not one single girl in the pageant this year that epitomizes the character and class of the Miss America Organization....there were 47! And if you had done any "research" at all or taken a behind the scenes look, you would have seen the new Miss Arkansas's 46 biggest fans in her fellow competitors. This system isn't about awarding the most glitter or the girl who can swing her arms the best, it is about commending girls on their efforts of growing up into hardworking, eloquent, successful patrons of society!
And it's worth stating a second time: you better hope you never interview against a former pageant contestant....because you will lose EVERY time!
