We host one of the largest, most long standing pageant in Fayetteville, NC. The four young ladies chosen serve as ambassadors and represent the Dogwood Festival and the City of Fayetteville throughout the Southeastern region. They also participate in many local events with the Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County, The Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, The Downtown Alliance and the downtown Dogwood Festival events.
Our winners are chosen in four age groups: Junior Miss (6-9), Young Miss (10-12), Teen Miss (13-16), and Miss Fayetteville Dogwood Festival (17-22). Contestants compete in three categories: a private interview, evening gown competition, and on-stage interview.
The Miss Fayetteville Dogwood Festival winner receives a $1,000 cash scholarship as well as scholarships to Methodist University, Fayetteville State University, and Fayetteville Technical Community College.
Contestants also compete for the Shirley Stallings Community Service Award. To compete, the contestant must present an essay explaining her community service and how it has made a difference in the lives of others.
