Miss Sixteen Contest: Good Luck, April!

If you stop by Memory Bound anytime in the next few weeks, you'll see a photo of a lovely young woman, April Rush. April is the daughter of our staff member, Michele, and is a contestant in the Miss Sixteen Competition at the 2011 Ankeny SummerFest. Memory Bound is sponsoring April in this competition!

April will be a junior at Ankeny High School in the fall. She is a basketball cheerleader and also enjoys tennis. Math is her favorite subject in school. Her favorite summer activity is hanging out at the pool. (We hope the weather improves so she can do a little bit more of that this summer!)

SummerFest is Ankeny's annual summer celebration. It will be held July 7-10 this year and features all kinds of activities for the entire family, including a carnival, parade, music, food vendors, and much more.

This year, there are 80 girls competing in the Miss Sixteen competition. There are two categories for recognition: Miss Photogenic and Miss Scholastic. All the contestants wrote an essay which will be judged as part of the competition. In addition, all the girls will ride in the back of a convertible car during the parade on Saturday morning. (What a great scrapbook page that will make!)

You can find out more about the Miss Sixteen contest here. The contest results will be announced at the event on Saturday evening, July 9. Memory Bound is proud and excited to sponsor April. We wish her the best of luck!
