Beauty pageants aren't just about swimsuit competitions and modeling anymore. Tallahassee has added a mentoring component to this year's Miss Florida USA competition.
Along with seeking young women for Miss Tallahassee USA and Miss Tallahassee Teen USA, pageant directors are looking for four to 10-year-olds to take part in the "Little Miss Tallahassee Mentoring Program."
The goal is to teach character building skills and self esteem. Applications for the pageants and mentoring group are due February 19.
