The Quality of Life winner and recipient of a $6000 scholarship will be announced Friday January 14th at 3p.m. Two runners-up to the award will receive $4000 and $2000. I'm calling my Las Vegas booky and putting money on Miss Delaware who has been all over national media talking about her baldness caused by the disease on which her platform is based.
