Whidbey Island’s Pageant Wyse Inc. will hold its first one-day pageant this summer, the Miss Pioneer Way Pageant, for girls ages 5 to 10.

This is the first year Pageant Wyse will hold the event, scheduled for July 4, 2016, and open to young girls “who have travelled along Pioneer Way.”

A queen and first princess will be awarded from three divisions: the “Mini” division for girls 5-6 years old, the “Little” division for girls 7-8 years old and the “Young” division for girls 9-10 years old.

Winners will join the Miss Oak Harbor Royalty in the 4th of July Rotary and Chamber Grand Parade in Oak Harbor.

Applications for the all-natural — no make-up — pageant are now available at the Oak Harbor Chamber of Commerce and Peoples Bank, with only 45 contestants, 15 from each division, being accepted until June 30.

Entry fee is $25 and applicants are asked to learn the lyrics to “Grand Ol’ Flag.”
