COVINGTON, Ga. - The Alcovy High School Tiger Cheerleaders will host the first Miss Covington Pageant at the Alcovy High School Auditorium Saturday, Oct. 26, starting at 10 a.m.
Crissy Alter, cheerleader mom, stated that the pageant will help girls “build confidence” and become “more sociable.”
“It’s a great learning opportunity and allows them to meet other girls - to see pageants are not what the media makes them out to be,” she said. “There’s no JonBenét or Honey Boo Boo.”
The Miss Covington Pageant will be a fundraiser for the AHS Cheerleaders - to help them purchase uniforms and other necessities - with a portion of the proceeds donated in honor of breast cancer awareness.
The admission price for the pageant is $5 per person, and for those interested in entering the pageant, the fee is $50 with a required $25 deposit to hold a spot. An entry form for the pageant, as well as pageant rules and guidelines, can be found at https://alcovyhighschoolcheer.weebly.com.
The deadline to enter the pageant is Monday, Oct. 14.
The AHS Tiger Cheerleaders are currently seeking sponsors for the Miss Covington Pageant.
“We are asking local businesses to donate gift certificates or products that will be awarded at the end,” they said. “All sponsoring businesses will be promoted on social media, in addition to the pageant.”
