KAYSVILLE -- Nine young women will compete Saturday for the title of Miss Davis County.
In addition, six contestants between ages 13 and 17 will compete earlier that same day for Miss Davis County Outstanding Teen.
"They are kind of getting a two-for-one," said Natalie Murray, executive director for the two pageants being held back to back at Davis High School, 325 S. Main St., Kaysville.
The Miss Davis County Scholarship Pageant will begin at 7 p.m., while the outstanding teen pageant will begin at 3 p.m. The cost to attend both events is $8 before the event and $10 at the door.
Michael McLean, popular LDS singer-songwriter, will serve as master of ceremonies.
"The Miss Davis County Scholarship Pageant is a preliminary to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant," Murray said.
The winner of the pageant will go on to compete in the Miss Utah Scholarship Pageant, to be held in June 2012, she said.
The winner of the outstanding teen competition will compete in the Miss Utah Outstanding Teen Pageant this October, Murray said.
It has been a couple of years since the county last held the outstanding teen pageant, Murray said.
The contestants in the Miss Davis County Pageant can range in age from 17 to 24, she said.
Those competing for Miss Davis County are Rachel Fullwood, Kennedy Wilkes, Kelsey Jepperson and Ellie Tucker, all of Kaysville; Kara Arnold and Holly Ammon, both of Bountiful; Bailey Johnson, of Syracuse; Bailee Goddard, of South Weber; and Ashleigh Hefner, of Farmington.
Contestants for Miss Davis County Outstanding Teen are Misty Yamane, Janci Hamblin and Ashlie Albrecht, all of Syracuse; Ciara Hansen, of Layton; Alecia Southwick, of Kaysville; and Sarah Madsen, of Fruit Heights.
To be eligible to compete, contestants must live in Davis County, or their parents must live in the county, Murray said.
