Who will be Little Miss Shamrock – Little Lassie – Irish Miss for 2008? It’s that time of year to think about entering the Junior Miss Pageant.

Entrants must be five years old by March 9, 2008, with no exceptions. Little Lassie contestants are ages eight to 11. And the Irish Miss is age 12 through 16. The contest is limited to eight entries in each age group. One winner will be crowned in each age group.

The 2008 Junior Miss Pageant is Sunday, March 9, at Corrigan Hall. Contestants will be judged on a pre-pageant interview, talent, overall presentation, and appearance.
