WEST FARGO, ND – The Red River Valley Fair Association and the Miss West Fargo Scholarship Organization are together hosting the first annual Miss Red River Valley Fair and Miss West Fargo Pageant. The pageant will be held on Saturday, July 14th at 4:00 pm in the Foltz Special Events Center building at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds. The titles of Miss Red River Valley Fair, Miss West Fargo, and Miss Bonanzaville will be awarded. Each winner will receive a prize package, in addition to a $500 scholarship and entry to the 2019 Miss North Dakota Pageant.

“I am so excited to bring the Miss West Fargo Pageant to the Red River Valley Fair,” Miss West Fargo Director Meagan McDougall said. “We have been blessed with great community support for our program over the years, and by teaming up with another fantastic organization in our community, our program, our contestants and our community will all see a positive impact.”

The Pageant will be held as a preliminary qualifying pageant within the Miss America Organization. Winners of the pageant will receive a scholarship and will receive entry to the Miss North Dakota Pageant to be held in Williston, ND in June 2019.
