The 2011 Miss Arkansas Tech University winner is not the only young lady who will be treated like a queen.
Pageant contestants will receive multiple benefits and gifts just for entering to assist in preparation for the competition. Jim Collins, executive director of Miss Tech, says he is thankful for the support shown to the Miss Tech pageant by the Russellville community.
Back-to-Basics, located on Reasoner Lane in Russellville one block north of the campus, is offering the contestants a free two week membership for girls who want to tone up for the swimsuit competition.
Joy Murphy is Dance with Joy, the newest Miss Tech sponsor, will conduct a modeling training session for all the contestants the week before the pageant. She will also work with the winner to prepare for Miss Arkansas.
Contestants will each receive a group photo taken on the evening of rehearsal by Steve Newby.
The week of Miss Tech can be very busy for contestants, so Jonya Davis will once again be hosting a BeautiControl spa night to help the young ladies relax.
Additionally, contestants have the opportunity to win several thousand dollars in scholarships and awards.
