Dottie Matthies Community Service Scholarship Award

Also available to all our contestants competing is the Dottie Matthies Community Service Scholarship Award.  The award is posthumously named after a Miss Omaha/Miss Douglas County Volunteer Dottie Matthies who epitomized what serving should be.  This is a $200 scholarship and is NOT part of the judging for the pageant.  It is a separate award given to the contestant that has done outstanding work on her platform and other volunteer work.
