The Bel Air Independence Day Committee is looking for its 2013 "Miss Bel Air Independence Day," the official hostess for the all-day festivities in Bel Air on Thursday, July 4, beginning with the flag-raising and pancake breakfast and ending with the traditional parade and fireworks.

Miss Bel Air Independence Day 2013 will also compete at the 2013 Miss Maryland Pageant in Hagerstown in late June.

The winner will be chosen by interview from all eligible applicants. Applicants must be young women from Harford County at least 17 years of age, and who will not turn 25 before Dec. 30, 2013. Applicants may not ever have been married and must be without children. Applicants must be willing and able to carry off the responsibilities of "official hostess" for the events in Bel Air on July 4, and to compete for the Miss Maryland crown, including attending the official Miss Maryland Pageant Orientation on May 11 in Hagerstown and participating in the Miss Maryland Pageant the week of June 16.

"We were very lucky to have had two wonderful Miss Bel Air Independence Day holders for 2011 and 2012," Michael Blum, vice president of the committee, said. "Stephanie Meadowcroft from Bel Air represented us just wonderfully last year. Plus, she participated and helped with most of the events and led the parade, too."

To apply for the title of Miss Bel Air Independence Day 2013, please visit the official Bel Air Independence Day Web site, http://www.belairjuly4.org, and follow the prompts. A member of the committee will contact applicants to arrange an interview.
