Hollyann Crum of Walnut Ridge is gearing up for the upcoming Miss Arkansas pageant, which will be held July 16-19 in Hot Springs.

Crum is the reigning Miss Lights of the Delta. She was last year's Miss Northeast Arkansas and won her swimsuit preliminary as well as the prestigious Newcomer Award at the 2007 Miss Arkansas Pageant.

Judging for the event is based on a contestant's performance in private interview; artistic expression or talent; lifestyle and fitness or swimsuit; and presence and poise or evening gown and onstage question. Crum will perform a vocal/tap to "Big Time" in her talent competition.

Crum's platform for the pageant is "Empowering Young Women Through Girl Scouting." Being a Girl Scout as a child, she said she learned invaluable lessons, and she now works as an adult volunteer and spokesperson for the Crowley's Ridge Girl Scout Council.

As the motivational speaker and emcee at this year's annual awards banquet, she presented the gold and silver awards.

"I reminded the scouts that they are our leaders of tomorrow, that they are the future of America," Crum said. "Girl Scouting is much more than camps, crafts and cookies ~ it's about finding the leader in each girl, and setting a standard for this country to follow."

Crum is also active in other areas of the community and at Williams Baptist College, where she is a junior majoring in English and minoring in communications. She is a 2006 honor graduate of Walnut Ridge High School and is the daughter of John and Karen Crum and the granddaughter of Virginia Crum and Helen Rash, all of Walnut Ridge.

Chloe Foley, 10-year-old daughter of Megan and Shane Foley, will accompany Hollyann to Hot Springs and serve as her Miss Arkansas Princess.

Crum will be competing against 42 other young ladies for the title of Miss Arkansas at the Summit Arena in Hot Springs. Tickets can be purchased at www.summitarena.org through Ticketmaster.

The winner of the Miss Arkansas Pageant will represent Arkansas at the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas.
