Every year, San Bernardino High School (SBHS) holds the Miss Cardinal City pageant, which prepares participating students to represent the school and community for the school year.
Miss Cardinal City, along with the reigning Mr. Cardinal City, represents SBHS at school and community functions throughout the year and volunteers with a variety of charitable organizations to support San Bernardino residents. The ambassadors are named in honor of the city they represent. SBHS is also a chartered city, Cardinal City.
Miss Cardinal City contestants are judged in several on- and off-stage categories, including interviews, fitness wear, formalwear, grades, and school attendance.
The school is asking local businesses and individuals to help make the pageant a success by donating time and resources. To become a sponsor, contact pageant director and bilingual school outreach worker Jaime Rios at (909) 881-8217.
The Miss Cardinal City Pageant will be held Saturday, September 15 at Sturges Center for the Fine Arts, 780 North E Street in San Bernardino. Tickets are available from Rios or any Miss Cardinal City contestant.
