Tonight, tickets were sold out for the 2022 Miss Deer Park Scholarship Program annual event. Six local Deer Park High School junior or sophomore ladies competed this year.

Alycyn Denton was crowned Miss Deer Park 2022 by the former Miss Deer Park Kaity Wacker. 2021 Princesses Xandria Moss and Mason Griffin awarded their crowns to the new 2022 Princesses Zoey Krous and Faith Marrocco. 

The theme this year was “Small Town Superhero.” The ladies were scored by a panel of judges for the chance to win one or more scholarships for their further education. The judges were Steph Burgos of Spokane, Marianna Boyd of Spokane, Sue Fogel of Colville, Whitney Knapp of Spokane, and Chris Hamp of Nine Mile Falls. Each of the young ladies was evaluated according to her merit and not in comparison to the others. Therefore, each category contributes to the contestant’s score.

  • Judges Interview 25%
  • Scholastic Achievement 25% 
  • Creative and Performing Arts 10%
  • Fitness 10%
  • Presence and Composure 10%
  • Participation 10%
  • Self Expression 10%

More than $12,850 of scholarships were given out tonight thanks to the generosity of businesses, organizations, and individuals in our area. 

The final results were:

Miss Deer Park 2022 – Alycyn Denton, Scholarship $3,350

Miss Deer Park Princess 2022 – Zoey Krous, Scholarship $2,950

The girls who competed this year were:
