Twenty-one young women representing high schools in Oklahoma and Kansas were on the Northwestern Oklahoma State University campus Saturday for an orientation session in preparation for the 59th annual Miss Cinderella Pageant held as part of the school’s homecoming celebration.

The contestants and their sponsors met with the pageant committee to review all requirements and rules associated with the talent show on Sept. 23, the pageant itself on Sept. 24, and Northwestern’s homecoming parade on Saturday, Sept. 25.

Dr. Janet Cunningham, Northwestern president, welcomed the contestants to campus.

The contestants were assigned to jewel groups—Amethyst, Emerald, Ruby and Diamond for judging—and had their photos taken for publicity purposes. The committee covered rehearsals, judging criteria, wardrobe requirements and all other activities connected with the pageant.

The 2010 contestants and the schools they represent, listed by jewel group are:

Both events will be held in Herod Hall Auditorium.
