The 2013 Miss Southeast Pageant is set for February 9th at 6:30 in the Godbey Appalachian Theatre

An evening of style and elegance will be in order at the Miss Southeast Scholarship Pageant scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9.

The event, featuring contestants from each of Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College’s five campuses located in Harlan, Bell and Letcher counties, will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Edsel Godbey Appalachian Center located on the Cumberland Campus.

Contestants will be judged on their talent, composure and appearance and their response to an on-stage question. A panel of judges from across the SKCTC service area will choose the winner who will receive a $1,000 one-time scholarship to the college. She will represent Southeast at the Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival slated for May and held at Pine Mountain State Resort Park.

Entertainment during the 2013 pageant will feature the vocal stylings of reigning Miss Southeast, Taylyn Combs. Professor Carlton W. Hughes will serve as master of ceremonies, and the annual event is directed by Veria “Cookie” Baldwin.
