CHICO, Calif. - Girls and women of all ages are invited to sign up for this year's Heartshine Pageant open-call.

The Paradise-based organization says it looks for contestants who represent kindness, inner beauty, and community leadership. 25-year-old Ciara Barnes founded Heartshine in 2012 as part of her Paradise High graduation project. Barnes experienced open-heart surgery as a child and started the pageant to support the American Heart Foundation. Now the organization has grown nationwide. 

There are nine different age categories, including a "Mrs." Heartshine competition. The youngest contestant was 10 months old, and the oldest titleholder is 72 years old. This year entry fees for Camp Fire survivors are waived. Anyone interested in participating in this year's pageant can contact the Heartshine Foundation on Facebook or call 530-718-8591.

The next in a series of storms is approaching northern California tonight, and we'll have more rainy weather in the valley overnight with mountain snow. Showers will still fall Wednesday, with many more rain chances ahead.
