The lovely Miss Iceworm candidates dressed to the nines last Saturday to get their pictures taken, and they were treated like queens that morning. One of the candidates will wear the bedazzled crown and be named Miss Iceworm during the coronation ceremony on Feb. 3.

“The title of Miss Iceworm is a hallmark of Cordova and the Iceworm Festival. It represents a young woman who embodies the values of our community and carries these values with her as she pursues her life beyond Cordova. We are proud to send her into the world, and we support and champion her success,” said Emma Merritt, program director.
