This will include your choice of (1) 5 x 7 color photo and Billy will give me photo's for the program on a CD.   You can then contact the photographer to order your 5 x 7 to be turned in for judging and choose any photo's you would like to have put on your ad pages.  This will be emailed to [email protected] so we have a digital copy. 

Deadline is February 20th.  His phone number is 334-687-7457.

Interview Preparation

The following is a general list of things to think about for your interview.  This applies to all ages. 

An interview should flow like a conversation so help your daughter be familiar with her application.  Be sure to keep a copy of it for yourself.  She needs to be familiar with what is on it and how to answer questions that judges might pull from it but not have such rehearsed answers that she sounds as if you fed it to her.  Please talk to them about what they love about Eufaula, favorite place to eat, favortite place to go whether that is the bowling alley with friends or to one our many cute gift shops shopping with mom or a favorite hunting camp nearby with dad.
