Thank you qfingers!!!. There are countless reasons against anybody compiling a DNA database for any reason. Way too much room for errors, manipulation, and outright abuse.

Interesting ideas, Cool Edge, thanks for sharing them. My only questions about the fingerprint idea would be how would that be paid for, and who would have oversight over the information? Also, should election workers really be expected to serve as CSIs? And finally, at this point I don't trust the post office to accurately deliver the mail anymore... Would we really want them involved in our…

Miss Quincy Scholarship Program announces expansion for 2014 pageant

3 months, 3 weeks ago from Miss Quincy scholarship program

Those in Scott County are eligible to compete

The Miss Quincy Scholarship Program, a preliminary pageant to Miss Illinois and Miss America, is happy to announce the expansion of contestant eligibility to Scott County for the 2014 Miss Quincy, Miss Quincy’s Outstanding Teen, Miss Quincy’s Outstanding Pre-Teen and Little Miss Quincy Pageants.  The 2014 production will be “returning home” to the pageant’s original home in the Morrison Theatre in Quincy Junior High School on February 22, 2014.  Contestants in each age division can earn scholarship money for education, hone interview skills, become part of an exciting achievement program and follow their dream of becoming Miss America!

"For the last few years, we have received a lot of interest from the Scott County area. We are thrilled to be expanding our program and all the opportunities it provides to the young women who reside there,” said Lindsey Hess, Miss Quincy executive director.

To be eligible, contestants for Miss Quincy must be between the ages of 17-24, a U.S. citizen, a resident or attending school in Adams, Brown, Pike, Hancock or Schuyler Counties. Contestants entering the Miss Gem City pageant can live or go to school anywhere in the state of Illinois. A $100 donation to Children’s Miracle Network, the official platform of the Miss America Organization, must also be raised to compete in the local pageant. The winners of each title will compete at the Miss Illinois state competition.  Contestants for Little Miss Quincy must be between the ages of 6-9 and a resident of Adams, Brown, Pike, Hancock, Scott or Schuyler Counties.  A $25 entry fee is required to compete.

"The Miss Quincy pageant has given me opportunities to serve my community and has brought people into my life that I never would have met otherwise," said Miss Quincy 2013, Christina Hanna.  “This title has transformed me into the mature young woman I have always dreamed of becoming,” added Miss Quincy’s Outstanding Teen, Angelica Niemann.

Contestants for Miss Quincy’s Outstanding Teen must be between the ages of 13-17 (and no older than a junior in high school) and a resident of Adams, Brown, Pike, Hancock or Schuyler Counties.  The winner will compete for the title of Miss Illinois Outstanding Teen, the state preliminary to Miss America’s Outstanding Teen in Orlando, Florida. To be eligible, contestants for Miss Quincy’s Outstanding Pre-Teen must be between the ages of 10-12 and a resident in Adams, Brown, Pike, Hancock, Scott or Schuyler Counties.  A $100 sponsorship fee must be obtained to compete in either pageant.
