COOS BAY — Three young women were crowned Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd at the Hales Center for the Performing Arts and each walked away with scholarship money to help them further their educations.

In fact, more than $41,000 was awarded in cash and in-kind scholarship and tuition waivers among several of the 18 contestants - 12 Miss Coos County/Miss Pacific Shores and six Miss Coos County Outstanding Teens, according to Miss Coos County Executive Director Vicki Ericson.
