A few weeks ago I met with some pageant sisters to judge the Miss Oz-Straveganza pageant. There, Nina Davuuri, Miss Syracuse, decided to hold a Miss Syracuse’s Princess & Pre-teen Pageant.
Nina decide there that she wanted to run a Miss Syracuse Princess & Preteen pageant as a fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network. Within a matter of weeks she has arranged a venue, ordered crowns and sashes, and began receiving registrations!
Miss New York contestants are supposed to bring a Princess to the pageant. Although there is not an official pageant for the girls under 13, the Star Princess Program is designed to give the girls a confidence building experience and mentor throughout the year. Furthermore, the pageant itself was used as a fundraiser to help Nina reach her personal CMN goal.
