​​​​​Rising Stars (9 - 12 years of age)

Welcome to the Miss Rapid City's Rising Stars Leadership Program!

The Rapid City Rising Stars Leadership program is a mentor program designed to give girls a non-competitive opportunity to be involved in our organization. Primary focuses of the program are encouraging self-confidence, lasting friendships, community involvement and development of strong leadership qualities. Each participant will complete a community service project for Children's Miracle Network, work on stage presence, practice interview skills, and learn about being a leader in our community.

What is the Rising Stars Program?
The Rising Stars Program is designed to prepare girls to compete as a teen with confidence and experience. Preparation will start on Jan 5, 2018 with the Rising Stars Leadership Camp. The will do a craft, hear guest speakers, learn a dance to perform at the pageant, and partake in mock interviews. They will receive a "Rising Star" sash and pin for participating. Following the camp, the Rising Stars will participate in the Miss Rapid City Pageant on Saturday, Jan. 6 and Miss Central States Fair pageant on Sunday, Jan. 7. There they will perform their dance to experience a live audience. There will also be public appearances throughout the year to promote community service. Girls are encouraged to participate as Rising Stars for multiple years between the ages of 9 and 12.
