Miss Socastee High School Teen, Laney Barno, Set to Participate in the 2023 Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization Competition
Myrtle Beach, SC – Today, Miss Socastee High School Teen, Laney Barno, announced her intent to participate in the 86th Annual Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization Competition. Taking place at the Township Auditorium in Columbia, South Carolina, the Competition is set to begin on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, and will conclude with the crowning of Miss South Carolina Teen 2023 on Friday, June 23, 2023.
After competing in the 2023 Miss Socastee High School Teen competition, Miss Barno was crowned Miss Socastee High School Teen on January 21, 2023, making her an eligible delegate to compete for the title of Miss South Carolina Teen 2023. Miss Laney Barno hails from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and she is a rising senior at Socastee High School.
“I know that the Miss South Carolina Teen competition is the ultimate learning experience and I have no doubt it will create a multitude of memories, friendships, and other experiences that I will never forget,” said Barno. “This competition is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am so grateful to be a part of an organization that has helped so many girls take steps towards their dreams. I am excited to see where my time in the Miss South Carolina Organization takes me as I compete to take the first steps of my dreams as the next Miss South Carolina Teen.”
Each delegate, including Miss Barno, vying for the title of Miss South Carolina exemplifies all that is best in today’s modern woman. Miss South Carolina must be talented, intelligent and well-spoken, she is a leader with a strong commitment to her community, she understands the importance of mental and physical health, and she is a role model for millions as a relatable “it girl” who can connect with today’s contemporary woman.
We’re thrilled to welcome Laney to Columbia for the 2023 Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization Competition,” said Gavin J. Smith, Director of Public Relations for the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization. “In our 86th year of service to thousands of young ladies from all corners of the Palmetto State, we’re excited to kick off this vibrant, colorful and exciting event, and learn who will become our 2023 Miss South Carolina Teen.”
The Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization is an official preliminary to the Miss America Competition. Often perceived as a one-night competition to the general public, the organization lends itself to much more, including being one of the largest providers of scholarships to young women in the State of South Carolina, and facilitating a forum by which ladies can express their opinions, talents, and intelligence.
Participation in this program provides young women with the opportunity to promote individual social impact initiatives, gain experience through participation in interviews, talent performances, public speaking, and social/digital media interactions while serving as role models in their communities – all with the support of dedicated volunteers assisting them in their pursuit of academic excellence, service and lifelong success.
Candidates within the organization compete for over $200,000 in scholarships each year made possible by local competitions and the Miss South Carolina Scholarship Foundation. They also complete over thousands of hours of community service.
The Miss South Carolina Scholarship Organization operates within the guidelines of the Miss America Organization while stressing individuality, personal development, communication skills and physical and mental health.
