COLUMBIA CITY — Returning for its 16th year, the Distinguished Young Woman program, formerly Junior Miss, will highlight 10 Whitley County high school senior girls.

The program will be held Saturday at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Columbia City High School.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for students kindergarten through 12th grade.

Each of the participants will be scored in several categories. A panel interview, which will take place before the night’s program, is a 10-minute discussion with judges.

In this interview, judges will be looking for perception, sense of values, clarity of expression, concern and ability in human relations.

A three-person panel of educators will review and rate the transcripts of each participant, scoring them on their academic achievements.
