Miss Silverado Scholarship Program

What is Miss Silverado?

Miss Silverado is a scholarship for community minded women, representing and partnering with the Buena Park Noon Lions club. Miss Silverado and her court begin their reigning year at Silverado days where they judge contests, serve breakfast, and get the opportunity to engage with the community and all our service organizations. But once Silverado days is over, the work of the Miss Silverado court continues with the Lions Club. The Court will be involved in all Lions Club service activities such as Eggstravaganza, the Children's Shopping spree, Buena Park tree lighting, many pancake breakfasts, and so many more.

This program creates and fosters a community of smart, hardworking, and passionate women while giving you the support and tools to succeed in your personal and career goals. We can't wait to meet this years amazing applicants.
