The Miss Tennessee Volunteer Scholarship Pageant for the year 2020 is canceled. The annual event is held during the summer in Jackson. However, the City of Jackson and the County of Madison began a Phase 1 Economic Recovery Plan, which involves closing all city venues until September.
“We are saddened that our city venues will not be open this summer in order to host our pageant, but fully support our government officials who are implementing strategies to improve the overall health and economic strength of Jackson and the surrounding areas.
“Our board has been relentless in working through every scenario on behalf of our organization, local directors, local committee members, contestants, their parents, our generous sponsors and supportive fans to try and find a way to hold the state competition. After weeks of careful deliberation, and in following the latest guidelines issued on April 24th from national, state and local authorities, the organization feels it must begin to look ahead to 2021.”
