 Anyone interested in entering should attend one of the workshops to learn more about the competition and complete the necessary paperwork.

 Young women (ages 13-25) are eligible to enter.  The Miss Gastonia/Miss Gaston County/Miss Mount Holly competition is open to young women who live, work, or attend school in one of the following 10 counties: Gaston, Cleveland, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Union, Cabarrus, Catawba, Caldwell, Rutherford, and Burke.  Girls in the Outstanding Teen division do not have to live in a particular county to enter.
