Miss Seafair Scholarship Program for Women Coronation
Location: Seattle Repertory Theatre
Date/Times: 7/24/2014 6:30 pm - 12:00 am
The Seafair Scholarship Program for Women is one of Seattle's most time-honored traditions. It is designed to give young women the opportunity to celebrate the rich diversity of the Puget Sound region and enrich their lives through education, philanthropy and community involvement. To become Miss Seafair, young women are judged on academics, public speaking, interview skills and creative expression. Seafair will award a record $20,000 in scholarships, recognizing outstanding young women in our community in 2014. Participants will also visit nearly 20 community events and festivals throughout the summer as well as hospitals and retirement facilities bringing Seafair to those who can't experience it on their own.
This year Seafair will be crowning its 65th Miss Seafair at the Seattle Repertory Theatre on July 24. We invite friends and family to attend this wonderful event in support of the 2014 Scholarship Program for Women participants. At the beginning of the night, the top eight semi-finalists will be announced and present their community service platforms. The group will then be narrowed to five who will come back to the stage for an interview session. Awards for each judged category will also be presented prior to the Coronation of the new 2014-2015 Miss Seafair. We hope to see you there!
The Seafair Commodores have served as goodwill ambassadors for the city of Seattle and Seafair since 1955. The Commodores serve two specific purposes: promoting the Seafair Scholarship Program for Women and building relationships with community civic organizations around the Pacific Northwest. The Seafair Commodores assist and support the Scholarship Program for Women by providing escorts for Miss Seafair and her court during parades and special events. The proceeds from the Commodores fundraising activities go to the scholarship program.
