Dear Prospective Candidate:
We are pleased that you are considering entering the 2024 Miss Butler County Scholarship Competition which will be held at 5:00 pm on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at the Vagabond Event Center, 138 Whitestown Road, Lyndora PA.

The private interview will take place on the date of the competition (November 5), during the morning or afternoon prior to the start of on-stage competition. The judges are seated, and the candidate is at a podium in front of the judges. The judges’ chairperson will introduce you and the questions begin immediately. Do not go to the judges table to shake hands with the judges. You will immediately go to the podium and begin to answer questions. For Miss Candidates the interview length is 10 minutes. The first 9 and ½ minutes are spent on questions and answers. At the 9 and ½ minutes mark, one of the judges will tell you that the formal part of your interview has been completed and ask if you wish to add anything at that time. If you choose to do so you have ½ minute to speak. It is your decision whether to end the interview at that point or to add something. Your decision does not influence your scoring but, if you chose to add something it does play a part in your scoring. Please remember that no visual aids, paperwork, or props may be brought into the interview.
