CONCORD - The Miss New Hampshire scholarship program is celebrating its 70th anniversary.

This year, 28 local contestants each won a local pageant to be eligible to compete on the Stockbridge Theater stage at Pinkerton Academy in Derry.

The program will award $70,000 in scholarships to celebrate the program's anniversary. On Wednesday the contestants compete in interview, and on Thursday and Friday the group is divided in half and competes in preliminary stage competitions in talent, evening wear, swimsuit and on-stage question.

The top contestants selected by a panel of five judges then compete on the final night - Saturday - for the Miss New Hampshire crown and go on to compete in Miss America.

The contestants stopped by the NH1 News studio on Tuesday.
