Greenwood resident Shaquiria S. Curtis will be vying for the title of Modern American Miss Mississippi 2019.

The Modern American Miss Mississippi Inaugural pageant will be held at 10 a.m. on March 17 in the grand ballroom of the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in downtown Jackson.

At this pageant, six young women will be crowned and given more than $5,000 in cash prizes and opportunities with a chance to represent Mississippi on national stage in August.

The Modern American Miss Mississippi organization said it is ecstatic to introduce this new pageant system to the capital city.

Modern American Miss serves to provide charismatic and well-rounded young girls and women with a platform to grow in character and confidence and a personalized, diverse and competitive experience tailored to honing in on their individual, unique strengths.
