The 2024 Miss Tennessee Scholarship Competition is coming to ETSU’s Martin Center for the Arts June 20-22, 2024. Preliminary competitions will be the evenings of the 20th and 21st. Finals for the Teen and Miss categories will be in the afternoon and evening of the 22nd. Contestants will be in our region beginning June 16th and will participate in public appearances and service projects leading up to the competitions at Martin Center. Organizers are in the planning stages for the event and further details will be announced for the competition and ancillary events in the future.
Miss Tennessee Scholarship Competition organizers, along with Visit Johnson City, City of Johnson City, East Tennessee State University, and Holiday Inn Johnson City, gathered for a public press conference last week officially announcing Johnson City as the host destination for the 2024 event.
“Our organization has been committed to be inclusive of the entire state of Tennessee from the time we took over leadership of the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Competition. We have been in Memphis, our West Tennessee home, for the past three years, while also diligently searching for an East Tennessee home. Johnson City and the greater region have been warm, welcoming, enthusiastic, and ever so supportive of bringing the competition to East Tennessee. We could not think of a better city to call our East Tennessee home,” said Joe Albright, CEO and Board Chair of Miss Tennessee Scholarship Competition, Inc.
We are honored to be a sponsor of next year’s competition and are anticipating a high return on visitor impact and media value for the city,” said Alec Castro, Director of Sales and Public Relations at Visit Johnson City. “This competition is anticipated to bring 100 involved members and attract 1,000 attendees throughout the three days of competition. An event such as this will not only impact our local economy positively but further place Johnson City and Northeast Tennessee in the state and national spotlight.”
This state competition is an opportunity for young women to showcase their leadership, gifts, and talents, as well as nurtures the next generation of leaders by providing access to the required education that will provide them the tools to rise to that challenge.
