Cobb County is looking for a new young woman and teen to crown. The 63rd Miss Cobb County Competition will kick off Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Jennie T. Anderson Theater located at 548 South Marietta Parkway in Marietta.
The new Miss Cobb will be crowned by the reigning Miss Cobb County, Holly Haynes, who placed second runner-up in this year’s Miss Georgia Competition.
Megan Wright, the 2021 Miss Georgia’s Outstanding Teen who placed 3rd runner-up in the national contest at Universal Studios in Orlando last week, will also be present to crown the new Miss Cobb County’s Outstanding Teen. Wright won a preliminary award in on-stage question/evening wear. She represented Cobb County in the 2021 state contest.
