2014 Runners Up Recap

Placing at a pageant is great; you came and did your best, and get to walk away with scholarship money. You may have learned what you need to do better for next time. None the less, you more than likely will compete again, with hopes of having your name called last.

In 2014, 8 girls who placed in various local pageants refused to give up, and went on to win a local title. Perhaps the most enduring was Sarah Hreyo, Miss Empire Star, who placed in four local pageants before taking home the crown at her 5th and final pageant.
