The Evans County Forestry Pageant will be Saturday, Nov.13, at Claxton Middle School auditorium in Claxton.
The Georgia Forestry Pageant is the oldest scholarship pageant in the state of Georgia, and this will be its 72nd year.
Brandy Foskey has been appointed as the pageant director for Evans County by the Georgia Forestry Pageant and Educational Association Inc.
Foskey brings more than 10 years of pageant experience to the Evans County Forestry Pageant. She also attended the Georgia Forestry Pageants Judges workshop and is a certified judge.
The Miss Georgia Forestry Pageant was started in 1940 to offer educational opportunities to young ladies while promoting Georgia’s No. 1 industry, forestry.
The pageant will be open to girls ages birth to 24 years in all surrounding counties. The younger girls are judged on a scale of 1 to 20 on poise, beauty, gown, personality and overall appearance. The Teen and Miss are judged on interview, public speaking and evening gown.
The winners of the Evans County Forestry Pageant will receive their entry fees paid to the 72nd Miss Georgia Forestry Pageant to represent Evans County. The county queens are treated like true royalty at the Miss Georgia Forestry State Pageant.
The girls participate in a parade with their county and title on their car, and they are treated to cookouts, tree farm tours and many more events. The Evans County queens will be responsible for promoting forestry for Evans County.
