It's been nearly five months since Michelle Manning was crowned the 2010 Marion County Junior Miss. Next week, she gets her chance to compete in the Kentucky Junior Miss Scholarship Program.
The 2010 state competition is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 15, and Saturday, Jan. 16 at the Singletary Center for the Arts in Lexington.
Manning said she has been grateful for all the help and support she has received getting ready for the state competition.
"I never knew the community was so involved with Junior Miss," she said.
