The Milledgeville-Baldwin County Junior Miss Scholarship Program is part of America’s Junior Miss Program, which is open to all high school junior girls. The Junior Miss Program, through the “Be Your Best Self” motto, delivers the message of living by moral principals, getting a good education, staying fit, proper nutrition, community service, setting goals, and working to reach them. The girls are judged in scholastics, interview, talent, fitness and poise. This is the second Milledgeville-Baldwin County Junior Miss program.
In all, 12 cash tuition scholarships were awarded, thanks to the numerous local scholarship donors.

“I can’t begin to express how honored I am to be a part of this amazing program. Junior Miss has had an great impact on my life, and I am thrilled to be able to share this opportunity with the young women of Milledgeville and Baldwin County,” said April Bragg, chairwoman of the local program. “I have been so encouraged by the overwhelming response we received from the eager contestants, willing volunteers, and supportive businesses and individuals.”
Bragg stressed that the motivating force behind the Junior Miss program is its effort to recognize, reward and encourage excellence in its aim to contribute to the inner development of each participant.
“The focus of the Junior Miss program is always on encouraging each young woman to strive for continual improvement and to always be her best self,” Bragg said. “This year we had eight wonderful participants who have been an inspiration to me by reminding me what the Junior Miss spirit is really all about by truly being their best selves.”
Joy Eady, manager of Milledgeville Main Street, expressed her thanks to the program. “Milledgeville Main Street is proud to be a part of this wonderful scholarship program,” said Eady. “This is a great way to showcase our local high school juniors and award them for being their best self.
