Jillian Zucco, 20, of Mattapoisett, will be competing in the Miss Massachusetts Scholarship Pageant, a preliminary to the Miss America Pageant, this weekend at the Hanover Theatre in Worcester. She will be competing with 20 other young bright and talented women from across the state. Jillian is the reigning Miss Fall River who was crowned in November, and since her coronation has been busy making appearances at numerous community events, where she performs and speaks to various audiences on her platform, “Choose a Cause, Make a Difference,” promoting the spirit of volunteerism. Zucco’s talent is a vocal performance.
The competition is a two-day event. All contestants compete on Friday evening in all categories. The show opens on Saturday night with the announcement of the Top 10 and the people’s choice winner (decided by an online vote at www.missmass.org, which closes at midnight on Friday night). Only these 11 will compete at Saturday’s Finals.
