Organizers are gearing up for the 2014 Miss Shamrock Pageant and are now encouraging potential contestants to sign up to be a part of this year's event. Those eligible to compete in this year's event are young ladies from Palo Alto, Kossuth, Emmet, Dickinson, Clay, Buena Vista, Pocahontas or Humboldt counties in Iowa, that are currently a Junior or Senior in High School.
"I am so pleased to be a part of this year's Miss Shamrock Pageant. It will be fun to be on the directing side of the pageant, after years of participating as a contestant," said Beth Elman, newly founded Director for the Miss Shamrock Pageant.
