Michele Wasson, executive director of Miss Poulsbo, Miss Kitsap and Miss Silverdale:

The Miss Poulsbo, Miss Kitsap and Miss Silverdale scholarship organizations are thrilled to offer nearly $38,000 in scholarships to their 17 contestants at their upcoming pageant at 5 p.m., Jan. 5, at Bremerton High School.

This will bring our scholarship total to $372,000 since 2000. Our theme for the night is the  “Let Me Be Your Star.” We will be crowning the 60th Miss Poulsbo, the 34th Miss Kitsap and our fourth Miss Silverdale.

We are pleased to continue our longtime partnership with Olympic College, who will be offering $3,000 in scholarships to our contestants. Our total to date with them is  $27,950 since 2005. For the third year in a row we are offing a full tuition $10,000  scholarship to the International Air and Hospitality Academy for a degree in hospitality management. Everest College will be giving one of our contestants a $5,000 tuition scholarship for any of the degrees they offer at their Bremerton campus.

Our current titleholders will have made over 230 appearances by pageant night and have given over 500 hours of community service. We would like to thank Miss Poulsbo 2012, Michaela Meeker, Miss Kitsap 2012, Jessicajae Townsend and Miss Silverdale 2012, Epiphany Nick for their dedication to our program and their service to the community.
