2017 WORK WEEKEND March 31-April 2, 2017
Embassy Suites, Greensboro
We are honored that you will join us in celebrating the incredibly diverse young women in North Carolina who continue to strive for excellence in their civic, performing arts, and scholastic endeavors. We are proud to partner with you in supporting the legacy of the Miss North Carolina Scholarship Pageant. Your support of this organization is critical to our success and to the success of over 90 young women who are competing for the two illustrious titles of 2017 Miss North Carolina and Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen.
We are delighted to announce that we are in the same location as last year, Embassy Suites in Greensboro, North Carolina. Miss and Teen contestants will be needed Friday through Sunday. To make a reservation, please call 336-668-4535. We strongly encourage parents and local committees to attend each meeting for which they are requested. A better informed contestant is a more competitive contestant! Our trade show will also take place this weekend where you will have a chance to browse wonderful clothing, jewelry, make up, and incredible services geared towards helping your contestant be her very best in June. Opening number outfits and shoes will be available for purchase for both Miss and Teen contestants. Teens will place their orders for their Fitness outfits as well. We are also excited to offer our Judges Seminar this spring with no fee to attend!
Following a dinner on Saturday night where Jennifer Pitts McKenna, Miss Virginia 2002 will be our keynote speaker, we will hold our selection lottery. Events for all contestants will take place each day on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Princesses are requested to attend the Crowning Dinner on Friday evening where each princess will be crowned by the reigning Miss America, Savvy Shields, along with our reigning Miss North Carolina and Miss North Carolina’s Outstanding Teen, McKenzie Faggart and Catherine White. All Carolina Princess information will be submitted in advance of WWE by the local directors.
State committee and local directors should be prepared to be individually photographed for the program book on Friday afternoon during registration. Information on group shot wardrobe for Miss and Teen will be emailed at a later time.
We look forward to seeing you at the most exciting and informative Work Weekend ever! Please make your reservations early because the room block will sell out quickly. We appreciate your continued support of this great program. See you in April!
