Ladies to compete for Miss Maroon and White title

Mississippi State women will compete for the title of Miss Maroon and White this week
The annual pageant, sponsored by the Campus Activities Board, will be held at 7 p.m. Friday in Bettersworth Auditorium in Lee Hall.
The Miss Maroon and White Pageant has been a staple at MSU since it began in 2003. This year, there are more than 40 young women competing for the crown.
Keri McMillin, the 2010 Mrs. Mississippi, will emcee the pageant, along with assistance from the reigning Miss Maroon and White, Mary Margaret Roark.
The pageant consists of three rounds — two beauty-based and the final round an on-stage question. The first stage round score is also combined with an interview score. All contestants will participate in the interview process earlier in the day.
Tickets are $8 and are available for purchase in advance at Colvard Student Union, Suite 300, or at the door the night of the pageant.
