Best of Luck to the Miss Muskingum Valley program

Tonight Miss Muskingum Valley will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Seacrest Auditorium in Zanesville and tomorrow night at the same time and place a winner will be crowned! The 21 contestants have been divided into two flights; everyone will compete in all phases of competition tonight, but by doing half of each phase before intermission, then half later, it'll make the night go faster. It may seem confusing or ineffective, but trust me, 21 talents or onstage questions in a row would get really long and boring! Then, tomorrow night the Top 10 contestants will compete in a normal pageant format.

The following women will compete; best of luck to everyone!
