PCC Welcomes Miss Kansas 2017 pageant

05 June 2017

This year, Pratt celebrates 62 years of hosting the Miss Kansas Pageant. Pratt Community College is the longtime provider of the pageant’s unique venue and a major in-kind sponsor. The event, which brings hundreds of people into the community from around the state, has been held on campus for over half of its history in Pratt. The pageant is held in the college’s Dennis Lesh Sport Arena, and contestants spend the week residing in the college residence halls.

PCC is also an in-kind scholarship sponsor, meaning that it is one of 20 higher education institutions in the state that partners with the Miss Kansas organization to offer scholarships to contestants, contingent upon eligibility and specified requirements. Many Board of Regents schools are facing funding cuts and in numerous cases, in-kind scholarships are the best option for Kansas women to complete their degrees and graduate on time.

The pageant will be held June 7 – 10. Miss Kansas 2017 & Miss Kansas’ Outstanding Teen 2017 will be crowned June 10 in Dennis Lesh Sports Arena.

Providing facilities and services for a large scale event like the pageant is just one of the ways that PCC celebrates being part of the Pratt community. Our mission is maximum student learning, individual and workforce development, high quality instruction and service, and community enrichment. Each year, the members of the PCC family contribute more than 13,000 hours in community service and engagement to South Central Kansas. Our middle name is community.
