The 69th annual Miss Grantsville Pageant will take place at 6 p.m. July 2 at the Grantsville High School auditorium.

The contestants, who range in age from 16-23, are required to submit a packet of paperwork, and must meet minimum GPA and other standards.
The winners are selected by a panel of judges based on a review of their submitted paperwork, an interview, answering an on-stage question, attitude, the performance of a talent and a walk in a formal gown.
