Last Weekend, March 10, saw 23 young ladies compete in the 2017 Miss Fannin County Middle School Pageant held at the Fannin High School Performing Arts Center.
The evening consisted of the contestants presentation in casual wear, followed by a special performance from Studio 1 Performing Arts School. Then Contestants returned for Formal Wear.
The audience was also treated to a performance from the FCHS Drama Club as contestants prepared for the announcement of the Top Five.
Excitement mounted in the young women as the announcements came for Taylor Brooke Coleman, Monica Cosentino, Kennedy Harper, Lexy Long, and Kaylee Scarbary.
These moved on to the final portion of the Pageant. Each of the top five were interviewed as the judges listened, making final choices about their decisions.
Finally, the moment much anticipated by each girl on stage, the winners were announced.
Second Runner-Up was awarded to Monica Cosentino. She was sponsored by Mike and Inge Cosentino (Big Ridge Running Co.).
