Grace, glitz and guts commanded the stage as the Miss Deer Park Scholarship Association held their annual ceremony tonight at Christ’s Church in Deer Park, WA. Eight local Deer Park High School junior ladies competed to be crowned Miss Deer Park 2021.
Despite having only two short weeks to prepare for this event, every contestant contributed beautifully to a seamless performance showcasing their physical fitness, creative expression, self expression, presence and composure, and lastly, answering two questions posed by the judges. Over $13,000 of scholarships were able to be given out tonight thanks to the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals in our area. An additional $100 was added onto each scholarship by the Settler’s Committee, and an unexpected honorary memorial scholarship in the name of a beloved teacher was also awarded.
The final results are:
Miss Deer Park 2021 – Kaity Wacker, Scholarship $3,500
Miss Deer Park Princess 2021 – Mason Griffin, Scholarship $3,100
Miss Deer Park Princess 2021 – Xandria Moss, Scholarship $3,100
