Testimonials

Quotes I began my journey with the Miss Muscatine Program almost one year ago. It hasn't even been 12 months, & I cannot begin to sum up the wonderful experiences I've had as a titleholder within this program. There are no words for how helpful, supportive, & determined the Miss Muscatine Board is. They have become like family to me. In the months prior to Miss Iowa, they helped me to prep for the pageant, but above all, helped me to be the best titleholder & Maggie that I could be. For that, I am forever grateful. They truly bring out the best in you; I had the best interview of my pageant career this year with their help, was in the best physical shape of my life at the time of Miss Iowa, was prepared, both mentally & physically, & had the support of an amazing group of women. It's wonderful having a board that works so hard to assure your success, not only as a titleholder, but as you venture off into other endeavors. A huge thank you to the Miss Muscatine Program! Quotes

Quotes It is difficult to express how wonderful our experience has been during our involvement with the Miss Muscatine Pageant. Our primary goal was to help our daughter gain confidence, interview skills, polish her social interaction and earn scholarships. All of our goals were met and more. The Miss Muscatine board took the time to get to know our daughter and subsequently supported her by guiding her to opportunities that would help her develop and reach her goals. We are elated that she is now confident and successful in both her professional life and personal life. You do not have to win the crown to realize benefits from involvement with this group. They are upbeat and supportive so you cannot help but grow through the experience. Once you become part of the Miss Muscatine family you can be assured they will be supportive of you whether you go on to win the state crown, another local crown or if you choose to pursue other goals. Thank you to the board for their hard work! Quotes

Quotes As parents of Elizabeth Miller, Teen Miss Muscatine 2003, we were impressed with the professionalism and personal mentorship given to our daughter during her rein. The board organized multiple events for Elizabeth to represent Muscatine, which gave her experience engaging with the public and making friends in the community. With the help of the Miss Muscatine Scholarship Program board members, including their coaching and mock interviews, Elizabeth was well prepared for the state competition. We highly recommend this scholarship pageant to all teen contestants. Quotes

Quotes I am so glad that I made the decision to compete in the Miss Muscatine Scholarship Program. From registration to coronation, the entire process was very well organized, and this is all due to the incredibly supportive volunteers and dedicated board members. Any young woman selected to represent this program and community is very lucky. She will receive an overwhelming amount of support from the moment she is crowned to ensure that she feels 100% ready to compete at Miss Iowa or Miss Iowa's Outstanding Teen. From mock interviews, wardrobe selection, and talent preparation to paperwork assistance, fitness resources, and community service opportunities, no stones will be left unturned. This was such a positive experience for me, and I would highly recommend getting involved as a contestant, volunteer, sponsor, or board member. You won't regret it! Quotes

Quotes I cannot begin to express what an amazing experience I had as Miss Muscatine. It was definitely one of the best years of my life! The board was simply amazing! They were there for my every question, throughout Miss Iowa preparation, and served more as friends than board members. Their guidance and advice greatly helped in preparing for the Miss Iowa stage and beyond. I am very proud to have been Miss Muscatine and for everything else I gained through the experience. Thank you so much! Quotes
