Miss Kalamalka Rotary

Vernon's 59th Queen Silver Star will be crowned Jan. 31 at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre, kicking off the Vernon Winter Carnival Feb. 1-10.

Castanet is featuring all the candidates vying for the title. Among them is Miss Kalamalka Rotary, Hayley Rakos. Rakos attends W.L. Seaton Secondary School. She enjoys horseback riding, BMXing and painting.

She has volunteered as fundraiser for BC Children’s Hospital and the BC SPCA, and plans to become a nurse.

The Queen Silver Star Excellence Program for young women 15 to 18 includes six months of training in a wide variety of skills, from etiquette to car maintenance, health and fitness, modelling and deportment, self defence and public speaking. They can also win scholarships.

The candidates take part in a fashion show and talent showcase, and those chosen as ambassadors spend the year travelling as ambassadors for the City of Vernon.
