Each year one girl will walk away with a local crown, compete at Miss New York (possibly win!), and at the end of her year- she will pass the crown on to the next girl. But these amazing, smart, beautiful, and talented women should not be forgotten. They are an important part of the Miss New York legacy.
There has only been one Miss Northern New York, who was crowned on April 19, 2008. The pageant was truly a legacy affair, as three Miss New Yorks, and the current Miss New York’s Outstanding Teen came together to make it happen. Jessica Lynch Renzi (Miss NY 2003) served as the Executive Director, Bethlene Pancoast (Miss NY 2006) and Elisabeth Baldanza (Miss NY 2007) both volunteered at the event. And Allison Carlos (Miss NYOT 2007) crowned the winner.
In 2015, the Miss Thousand Islands Organization sponsored a Miss Northern New York’s Outstanding Teen, who placed at the state pageant.
