Last night, 25 senior high school girls from various Houston county schools strutted their stuff at the Dothan Opera House.
It was part of the 2010 Junior Miss Competition.
This year's winner is Houston Academy senior Jordie Keeley.
The national scholarship program rewards outstanding young women for their achievements.
The girls are evaluated in five categories: their interview skills, scholastic achievement, talent, fitness and poise.
Each year, Houston County Junior Miss competition gives out $30,000 in college scholarship money.
As the winner, Jordie was awarded a full college scholarship for her hard work.
“I don’t think it's really sunk in yet, it's been an overwhelming experience. It was awesome, it gives you so much self confidence it's just really great experience. Even if you don't win any scholarship money I think it will really help girls once they go off to college and even after college with being more self-confident,” said Keeley.
In January, she will head to Montgomery to compete for the title as Alabama Junior Miss.
