The search is on for the new Mrs. Delaware County.

Once selected, the community representative will then advance on to compete in the Mrs. Ohio America Pageant to be held in the spring, in downtown Columbus. City and county titleholders will compete to win over $15,000 in prizes, one of which includes an all expenses paid trip to the prestigious Mrs. America Pageant.

Interested applicants must live or work in the Delaware County area, must be married during the time of competition, a resident of the state for at least six months, a U.S. citizen and be at least 18 years old. There is no age limit or performing talent.

In its 38th year, the Mrs. America Pageant is the only nationally televised pageant dedicated to recognizing the one person who contributes so much to modern family life—America’s married woman. While beauty is a key element in the competition, Mrs. Ohio America contestants are also urged to voice their opinions on marriage and important issues of the day.

Interested applicants are invited to find out more about the competition at and/or can request and receive free entry information by contacting Emily Stark, the Ohio director for the Mrs. America Pageant system at the Mrs. Ohio America office at (303) 593-1199.
