Miss Spokane Valley Leadership Program
The Miss Spokane Valley Leadership Program offers an opportunity for outstanding young women to be recognized for their achievements. Sophomore and junior girls attending any Spokane Valley high school are invited to apply for a position on the Royal Court. Our program is a scholarship program and a leadership program–it is NOT a beauty pageant. We are looking for leaders who want to give back to their community and develop their professional and interpersonal gifts.
Candidates are selected on the basis of their academic achievements, personal and professional etiquette, interview skills, and public speaking abilities. On the day of Miss Spokane Valley’s coronation, each candidate participates in an individual interview before a panel of judges. Each candidate also delivers a speech and answers several on-stage questions. Candidates are also invited to present a talent, hobby, or activity for up to five minutes.
Upon induction, Miss Spokane Valley and her court of two princesses participate in community events such as Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce meetings, Spokane Valley Rotary Club’s Annual Christmas Tree Lighting, City of Spokane Valley Park and Recreation’s Santa Breakfast, Step UP for Down Syndrome Walk and festivals including the Spokane Lilac Festival’s Torchlight Parade, Tekoa’s Slippery Gulch Parade, Davenport’s Pioneer Days, and of course Valleyfest’s Hearts of Gold Parade. Miss Spokane Valley will also receive the opportunity to participate in varying community service activities throughout the course of her year of reign.
Students of all ages are also encouraged to participate in Miss Spokane Valley’s 6-week leadership training course. (Candidature is not required in order to participate in training.) Attendees will have the opportunity to learn professional skills such as interviewing, resume writing, public speaking, and more from distinguished guest speakers and female leaders within the Spokane Valley community.
