The Miss Grafton—Miss Sum- merfest Scholarship program competition will take place on Jan. 17. Corrine Ralston, who is the Director of the Miss Grafton Scholarship Organization, said that the event is open only to current High School Seniors, or grad- uates, from schools in Walsh, Pembina, or Cavalier counties. “We are hoping to be able to crown two young ladies who will receive scholarships at the local level, and will be eligible to compete for more scholarships and the title of Miss North Dakota 2016 in J une in Williston,” she said adding that the number of titles tney are al- lowed to award will depend on the number of con- testants. In order to award two titles, they will need a minimum of five contestants. Every local titleholder that competes at the state com- petition receives at least a participation scholarship amount (in 2015 that amount was $800) and they are eligible for additional scholarships based on other cri— teria such as GPA, Community Service Project, Pro- motion (Salute Page sales for the program books), Tal- ent, Swimsuit/fitness, Interview, and more. In June 2015, the Miss North Dakota Scholarship Organiza— tion was able to give over $43,000 in scholarship as- sistance to 24 state contestants, over $12,000 of that going to our Miss North Dakota 2015. A contestant in the Miss America system must be at least 17 years old at the time of her first local com— petition and must be no older than 24 by December 31 in the year she competes for Miss North Dakota. She must also be at least a high school graduate by July 31 in the year she competes at state. Contestant must be a US Citizen, and North Dakota resident, or a full-time student at 3 ND college or university. There is an entry fee of$75, which contestants can have friends, family, or businesses sponsor them. Contestants are judged and scored in the following areas: Talent (90 second perfomiance of contestant’s choosing), Interview (10 minute private interview by a panel of j udges), Modeling in Eveningwear, Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimwear, and Oil—State Question. Corrine explained that they are hoping to raise enough scholarship money to cover the pageant in J an— uary and one in June. ' “The reason for this is that we would like this to be part of the SummerFest celebration and thus our “Miss Summerfest” title, but if we wait for SummerFest 2016, THE we will miss the opportunity to send contestants to the Miss North Dakota 2016 competition, which is the sec— ond weekend in June. So for this first time only, we will have a pageant in January and award scholarships to one (hopefully two) young ladies, who will go on to compete at Miss North Dakota competition in June, and then during SummerFest 2016 we will start our an- nual local pageant the end of June.” They also are considering including a teen compe— tition, with winner(s) advancing to the Miss North Dakota Outstanding Teen competition in June (and hopefully to Miss America’s Outstanding Teen com— petition in Orlando). This will depend on how well the fund—raising goes, and whether there is enough inter— est among eligible young ladies. The age requirement for this program are generally between ages 13 — 17. More specific information can be found at www.miss- northdakotaorg, and click on the Outstanding Teen tab. This organization, from the local competitions all the way to the Miss America National board, is run com— pletely by volunteers and donations. They are hoping to gather support, both in financial contributions and volunteer time and talent, from all three counties in— cluded in the pageant. If anyone is interested in volunteering in any way or supporting the program financially, please contact Corrine Ralston at gl‘afionpageant@gmail.com, or call 701—650-0638. “It all adds up. and will help our program offer much needed educational Scholarships for Very deserving young ladies in our area,” she said. “Amount of schol— arship offered at our Local competition to be deter— mined. This will depend on the denations received. We are hoping to offer $500 per title.” The Miss North Dakota Scholarship Organization is a 501(C)4 and an official preliminary to the Miss America Scholarship Pageant, the world’s leading provider of scholarships to young women. (Miss ND Educational Scholarship Fund Inc is the charitable en- tity of Miss ND Org, and is 501.03. That entity awards the scholarships.) The purpose and commitment of the Miss North Dakota Scholarship Organization is to recognize po— tential, reward achievement and promote women throughout North Dakota by providing opponunities to develop intewiewing and communication skills, en- hance performance capability, encourage a healthy lifestyle, promote community involvement through service, and build self—esteem and self-confidence through competition. In addition, provide scholarship dollars to encourage women in North Dakota to con- tinue their education in preparation for their future. LEGAL NOTICES WALSH COUNTY PRESS - WEDNESDAY.

A one hour activity where students choose from a variety of coding tutorials. Many of the resources our Students use are from Codeorg. Codeorg is a non—profit organization that en— visions “every student in every school should have the opportu— nity to learn computer program— ming.” How does coding fit into our school’s curriculum? Programming and coding most naturally fit into the sci— ence curriculum. But we see many other cross curricular connections that coding en- hances in English/Language Arts and mathematics. Stu— dents can transfomt a story they have written in language arts class into a story to watch on the screen, by determining when the characters appear and disappear as well as what ac- tions they do on screen. These are all coded. Students also use mathematical reasoning, prob— lem solving, and critical think- ing when they program a robot to move through a grid to arrive at its final destination. But coding doesn’t have to involve a computer. A student can write the steps down to cre- ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and then have a part- ner make the sandwich accord- ing to the written plans. You’ll see just how literal the written language/needs to be to~suow cessfujjy gpde the stepg for your commugjty event, Christmas pageahtfix, v special celebration, or any other need! Not too big. Why is your school doing an Hour of Code? While our students have grown up learning how to navi- gate today’s technology-ad— vanced world, many teachers aren’t as experienced in coding or computer science and need a place to start. The “Hour of Code" event is that starting point. Codeorg promotes many resources available so we all can see what computer science is about. I hope just this one hour of experience will spark an inter- est in our students to keep learning coding languages. Our student’s brains are receptive to learning a computer language just as they are to learning Eng- lish or another foreign lan— guage. Why is coding important? Our mission is to ensure that our students are college and ca- reer ready. Computer Science occupations are among the highest paying jobs for new col- lege graduates. Regardless of what our students grow'up to be, whether an artist, field of medicine, business or entrepre- neur, knowing how to build technology will build confi— dence. "The Hour of Code is de- signed to demystify code and show that computer science is not rocket—science, anybody can learn the basics," said Hadi Pai‘tovi, founder and CEO of Codeorg Note: Event happens on Monday, Dec. 7th during the school day and at ESP family night from 5:30—6:30.
