Shining Star applications

— Applica­tions for the annual Washington Shining Star Pageant are now online, pageant organizer Rene Martinez said.

The pageant for kindergarten to age 30 females, who are differently-abled, is set for Jan. 28 at Bethel Church, 270 N. Gap Road.

To accommodate the number of expected candidates, two times have been set – 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The community service project will again be pajamas, Martinez said.

She said there is a registration fee and personal buddies are being sought to help the candidates on stage.

“We want each girl to have a positive experience and to gain, not only confidence, but pleasant memories of the event,” Martinez said.

For applications call her at 775-741-3800.
