Local business European Wax Center (EWC) teamed up with Wilhelmina Models to launch a nationwide talent search. Women were eligible to enter until July 20, when applications were closed. Voting for the selection of the finalists took place between July 28 and Aug. 1. Finalists were notified in the days following if they made it. The next step of the competition is the Finals Event, which will take place Aug. 18. The grand prize winner of the Summer Goddess 2015 Model Search will receive a contract with Wilhelmina Models and a year of complimentary waxing services at participating EWC locations.
