Will You Be the next Ms. Gearhead? The contest to choose the 2017 Ms. Gearhead will be held during GEARFEST at intermission—and this year, the theme is Rosie The Riveter!
Rosie became a cultural icon during World War II as women stepped into the work place holding the country together with their dedication.
Strength, compassion, intelligence, resourceful, capable, and independence are some of the qualities admired in these women and our Ms. Gearhead contest is to highlight these same qualities in today's kustom kulture gals.
HOW TO ENTER:
*The first 15 women to enter will be in the contest-just head over to the ticket section below and select the option MS. GEARHEAD CONTEST PARTICIPANT.
*All contestants may dress in their idea of what Rosie The Riveter would look like today.
*Each contestant will have 3 minutes to speak about why she embodies the qualities of Ms. Gearhead.
*After a short deliberation our judges will select Ms. Gearhead 2017 based on how closely she meets the personal qualities of Ms. Gearhead.
