The 2013 Distinguished Young Women of Chewelah Scholarship Program will take place this Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m. in the Jenkins Middle School Gym. The program theme this year is “Magic Moments.”
Tickets are available at Valley Drug, Akers United Drug, The Chewelah Independent and AmericanWest Bank for $5. Tickets at the door will cost $7.
There will be a special table called the “Up – Down” table reserved for special greetings, encouragements and gifts that will be taken backstage to the girls competing. This table is a fun tradition and it is very encouraging for the contestants to get little notes and gifts before they perform.
