Young ladies, here’s your chance to be the official ambassador of the Meeker Days Arts & Music Festival! A charming and magical experience for young girls, the Lil Miss Meeker Pageant focuses on creativity and friendship. It is not a beauty pageant! The objective is to promote positive self-esteem and awareness and is a confidence building experience during a young girls’ social developmental years.
Open to girls’ age 6 to 9 who reside or attend school in Puyallup, Sumner/Bonney Lake or Orting.
Participants are scored on personality, etiquette skills, creativity, and a simple talent. Read a poem, twirl a baton, sing, dance, show us tricks you’ve taught your dog or do a presentation of your artwork. You’re only limited by your imagination!
Every participant will attend a workshop on basic etiquette and simple social skills such as greeting people, handshaking, eye contact, conversational tips, dining skills and tea etiquette.
Afterwards they will be treated to a special Lil Miss Meeker Tea where they will receive the official Lil’ Miss Meeker Days t-shirt that they will wear during the competition.
The winner of Lil Miss Meeker receives a special tiara, certificate of participation and other fun things. Throughout the year, Lil Miss Meeker attends various events such as the Hometown Santa Parade, Daffodil Festival Grand Floral Parade and the opening day of the Farmers’ Market representing the Festival at these events!
