LINCOLNTON, N.C. - The 41st annual Miss Lincoln County Apple Queen Scholarship Pageant, sponsored by the Business and Professional Women of Lincoln County, will be August 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the James W. Warren Citizens Center. Admission to the event is $10 per person. 

Thirteen young women ranging from upcoming seniors at Lincoln County High Schools to 22-year-old college students will compete for this coveted crown that comes with community leadership responsibilities and scholarship monies and prizes. There are multiple scholarship awards and prizes for the ladies to vie for, totaling more than $8,000. 

Since completing and submitting their applications to be contestants, the 13 women have rehearsed a group choreographed routine at Alternative Steps Dance Studio in downtown Lincolnton and finished one-on-one interviews, both of which will be presented on August 3. They have also prepared outfits for multiples phases of the pageant, including swimsuit and evening wear. 

Destiny Self, a graduate of West Lincoln High School, was named Apple Queen in 2018. As her year as reigning queen dedicated to awareness of children in foster care comes to a close, Self will pass on the crown to another hopeful woman with another platform to work on and big shoes to fill.
