The auditorium stage at Tooele High School was the venue Saturday night for the 2019 Miss Tooele City Scholarship Pageant.

Six local women competed for the honors, with Emma Wardle crowned Miss Tooele City 2019, and Sadee Simmons and Sarah Wilson selected as co-attendants.

Responsibilities for Miss Tooele City and her co-attendants include: Being a positive and professional representative for the city throughout the year and promoting the city as a great place to live, work and play; a role model for local youth; exhibiting patriotism and being ambassadors during the city’s Fourth of July celebration.

The scholarships are $2,000 for Miss Tooele City and $1,000 for each co-attendant. Scholarships are to be used to defray expenses related to academic advancement, and are paid to royalty after the Miss Tooele City Scholarship Pageant the following year.
