Miss Destin’s primary function is to represent the Destin Fishing Rodeo at weigh-ins everyday during the month of October. Destin resident high-school girls between the ages of 16 and 19 vie for the title of Miss Destin, which among other things, provides at least a $2,000 academic scholarship.
The pageant is not a beauty contest, the young lady who receives the title of Miss Destin is judged on her personality, maturity, communication skills and her availability to fulfill the duties of Miss Destin at the 74th Annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. She serves as a public figure throughout the year, representing Destin at many functions, including the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. Preceding the actual pageant, there are several fun-filled social events planned so that the contestants and their parents can meet with pageant officials and judges. Several events are planned prior to the pageant, including an afternoon Judges Tea on Sunday, March 6, 2022. Contestants will have individual interviews with the pageant judges as well as an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon with other contestants and their parents. The 2022 Miss Destin Pageant will be Saturday, March 12, 2022, once again hosted by Christian Garman, Marketing Manager, Andrews Institute. We will notify you of exact times and locations of all events.
