Sign up for the Mrs. Sakura Scholarship Pageant
The Mrs. Sakura Scholarship Pageant is quickly approaching and we are looking for married women and high school students who are dazzling diamonds and ravishing rubies. This pageant, with a theme of "Fire and Ice," is a wonderful opportunity to meet other fiery ladies, show off your cool style, and earn some extra money for college.
Application packets and fees are due Friday, April 4, so make that decision quickly and join the party! Packets are available at “The Mrs. Sakura Organization” (MSO) Facebook group (just ask to join), on the “Mrs. Sakura Scholarship Pageant” Facebook page, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. MSO members will also be setting up a table at the YCC weekends from noon to 2 p.m. to pass out information and applications.
The Mrs. Sakura Scholarship Pageant will be held Saturday, May 3 at the Taiyo Community Center. Workshops and rehearsals during the weeks leading up to the pageant will help the ladies fine tune their hot moves and sparkling stage presence.
There are two categories in the evening pageant:
Mrs. Sakura (married women with SOFA status, active duty or dependent)
Miss Teen Sakura (high school students)
Earlier in the day, the “Sugar and Spice” pageant will be held. This younger version of the Mrs. Sakura Pageant helps little ladies develop confidence and poise, as well as have great fun. The two categories for the afternoon pageant are:
Cherry Blossom Princess (ages 10-14)
Cherry Bud Princess (ages 5-9)
Many other prizes will be awarded in addition to the scholarship money. Local Yokota businesses and organizations are generously supporting the pageant and its contestants.
The Mrs. Sakura Organization also hosts events and contributes to the Yokota Air Base community throughout the year. The board is always looking for volunteers to get involved so join the Facebook group for more details about the next great occasion.
Could you be the next Mrs. Sakura or Miss Teen Sakura? You’ll only know if you let your fire burn brightly.
