The women compete in the areas of community service and fair experience, a personal and fair industry interview focusing on the entrant’s sense of value, attitudes, goals and aspirations, communication skills before a live audience and an on-stage presentation.
Scholarship awards will be: $2,000 to Miss Amador, $1,000 to the first runner-up, $750 to the second runner-up, and $500 to the third runner-up. Additional awards and prizes are offered by the community.
