Miss Jiselle Arciniega, age 5 has been chosen as a State Finalist in the National American Miss Arizona Pageant, to be held June 23 at the Doubletree Paradise Valley Resort in Scottsdale.
The winner of the Pageant will receive a $1,000 cash award, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses, and air transportation to compete in the National Pageant in California where she will receive an exciting complimentary Tour of Hollywood and two V.I.P tickets to Disneyland.
The National American Miss Pageants are unlike any other. All activities and competitions are kept age appropriate. Girls under the age of 12 are not allowed to wear make-up, and there is no swimsuit competition. The pageant program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation, and offers an “All-American spirit of fun for family and friends.” Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self confidence, learning good sportsmanship, as well as setting and achieving personal goals.
Arciniega’s activities will include dancing, singing, modeling and community involvement. Her sponsors include her family, Children’s Medical Center of Tucson, Ruiz Tire Shop, Krystal Clear Auto Glass & Tint, Mi Ranchito, LP’s Dance Studio, El Burron, Cho Salon Spa, Quijada’s Taxi & DJ, and Tapiceria Portillo.
