Call for Miss Lehi and Miss Lehi’s Outstanding Teen candidates
Lehi will be crowning a new queen this summer after Lindsey Larsen’s two-year reign as Miss Lehi. Larsen was set to compete in the Miss Utah Scholarship Competition in 2020 when it was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For 2021, Lehi Round-Up week will once again include the Miss Lehi Scholarship Competition at Lehi High School on Saturday, June 19.
“Lindsey has served the past two years, and we’re grateful for her stepping up for a second year while we navigated through a pandemic,” said Miss Lehi Director Kate Daly. “We’ve been so happy to see her in different classrooms, schools and with groups promoting Brain Breaks and teaching different dance routines to get moving.”
Candidates for Miss Lehi must be between 17 and 25, a United States citizen, and a resident of Lehi to compete. Candidate applications are due by May 1. Over $10,000 in scholarships and cash prizes will go to the winner and attendants—email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen, the scholarship competition for girls age 13 to 17 (and a junior in high school), took place in early March 2020 and avoided the COVID-19 shutdowns by just a few days. Savana Brown was crowned Miss Lehi’s Outstanding Teen in June 2020 at the Show Barn at Thanksgiving Point in a program attended by only immediate family and a handful of others and streamed online for the rest of the audience.
The 2021 Miss Lehi’s Outstanding Teen competition is on Saturday, June 5, at Skyridge High School. The first workshop for candidates is on Saturday, Mar. 27 at 9 a.m. at the Lehi Arts Center (685 N Center St). Applications for candidates are due Sunday, Apr. 18.
“This is a rewarding experience, and candidates learn and grow throughout the process. We also have a fun time – it’s a party,” said Jennifer Thomas, co-director with her daughter Caitlin Thomas for Miss Lehi’s Outstanding Teen. For more information, email Jennifer Thomas at email@example.com.
