Princess Program for the Pine Belt


This is a news release from the Leaf Foundation

The Leaf Foundation announces the addition of its new Princess Program, scheduled to launch in coordination with its Miss America local preliminary pageants to be held on October 12 in Hattiesburg.

The program, for girls 7-11 years old, is designed as a self-esteem building experience and will take place over the weekend of October 10-12.  It is being billed as a weekend of fun, dancing and living the life of a princess!

Each participating princess will be assigned to a contestant, participate in a production number during the actual show, and be formally introduced on stage.  Covered by the $150 participation fee, each princess will receive an official crown, sash and pageant t-shirt.

Leaf Foundation Princess Program Coordinator Kelly R. Williams remembers, "My own two daughters had an opportunity to serve as princesses at The Miss Mississippi Pageant in Vicksburg this summer.  That week of mentoring and performing opportunities changed their lives and mine. We are excited to duplicate that experience here in the Pine Belt!"

The deadline to register is Friday, September 26. Register today by mailing your check to Leaf Foundation, 201 Sherwood Drive, Hattiesburg, MS 39402. Checks may be made payable to Leaf Foundation.
