Four high school juniors will vie for the title of East Rowan High Miss Junior Civitan on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the school auditorium.

The general public may attend; the admission fee is three canned goods or $5. All proceeds will go towards Rowan Helping Ministries.

With 11,000 members across 350 clubs and four continents, Junior Civitans have an impact on the world. The East Rowan Junior Civitan Club is one of the largest clubs in the world, and Amanda Turner and Kathleen Stolfi are club advisers.

The 2016 Miss Junior Civitan will be crowned by Hannah Mayhew, Miss Junior Civitan 2015. Those vying for the crown include: Mia Graham, Grace Howell, Hailey Huffman and Victoria Trexler.

The contestants will compete in biographical sketches, talent, business and formal wear.

The 2016 title holder will be instrumental in planning the 2017 Miss Junior Civitan Pageant, and she will be a guest performer during the event.
