Miss Columbia Contest Will Return in 2019

The Miss Columbia Scholarship Competition that was held for 40 years in Columbia will return on Jan. 12.

The competition was held in Columbia from the 1960s until the early 2000s but fizzled out from lack of volunteers and board members, new director Cindy Segafredo said.

Segafredo, who has been a certified judge for five years, decided she wanted to bring the competition back to Columbia after she closed her daycare last year.

“I think it’s really important for young people, especially young ladies, to be able to be a good role model, be a good leader and to help all of those around them,” Segafredo said.
