We can't even believe that this moment is finally here, but we are so incredibly excited to share our video from BHANGRA FEVER 2017!!! This competition was a long and hard battle for this team: 17 days to prep a set, 13 different injuries, 3 years since the last competition, 2 songs released just a week before, and the list goes on, but we made it!

Finally...presenting to you...GU JAWANI!!!!!

Today is an important day because it's this girl's birthday! Svena is a sophomore majoring in Chemistry and minoring in English in the College. She is best known for her never-ending smile both on and off the dance floor, and we miss her so much as she is studying abroad in Italy this semester. Svena, we wish we could celebrate with you but since we can't, we hope you have an amazing birthday full of gelato, sightseeing and happiness!

Our very first featured dancer of the week is Angie Valenzuela!

Angie is a sophomore in the business school who joined Jawani this semester. Even though she is new to the team, Angie is already a member of the Jawani board and will be serving as Team Manager next semester, which is a testament to her amazing dedication!

Angie is also an avid cinephile and has watched Grease and Grease 2 so many times, she knows all the words!

Be sure to wish her a happy birthday next Monday!

Dear Friends at George Washington University, I am writing to ask you to forward this email to any young women, ages 18-25, who live, work or attend school in DC, who may be interested in competing for Miss DC 2018, which is an official preliminary to the Miss America Pageant. There is no entry fee. Miss DC 2018 will receive an academic cash scholarship of at least $10,000 to offset student loans and/or to use for future education. (Four runners-up also receive scholarships of lesser amounts.) Miss DC will represent the nation's capital at the 98th annual Miss America competition in Atlantic City next September (televised live on ABC). The new Miss America will receive a scholarship of $50,000 and a personal appearance contract, earning approximately $110,000 throughout her year of service. Talent (vocal, dance, instrumental, theatre, etc.) accounts for 30% of the contestant's score; Private Interview with the judges panel is 25%; On-stage interview before an audience equals 20%; Modeling evening wear is scored at 15%; and Physical Fitness in swimwear is 10%. Each contestant must select a community service cause with which she is involved and which she will continue upon earning the title. The Miss DC Organization will hold an information session on Saturday, November 4, 2017, for any young women who think they might be interested in this year’s competition. The meeting will take place from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Any prospective contestants who would like to attend should email me at [email protected] to reserve a spot. Interested young women are asked to complete and submit the online Prospective Contestant Information Form (http://www.missdc.org/prospective-contestant-information-form.html). This in no way obligates one to compete. The Preliminary Fact Sheet (http://www.missdc.org/uploads/7/4/7/8/74789587/preliminary-fact-sheet-2018.pdf) is now up on our website and may be submitted anytime between now and January 17, 2018. If one has any questions about eligibility, they may look here: http://www.missdc.org/uploads/7/4/7/8/74789587/2018_miss_dc_eligibility_checklist.pdf. Here is a list of important events and dates for the upcoming competition: http://www.missdc.org/important-dates.html Thanks for helping us find intelligent, articulate, talented, attractive, poised and community-service oriented young women for our June 2018 competition! We are very proud of Briana Kinsey, an American University graduate student, who last month finished as third runner-up at the Miss America Pageant. We are looking forward to another good year. We hope someone you know will join us! Sincerely, Jim Lindsay Chair, Contestant Recruitment Committee Miss District of Columbia Scholarship Organization
