Mont Harmon Middle School played host to three pageants for Carbon County this weekend. Friday night kicked off the glittery weekend, crowning a new Mini, Little and Junior Miss Carbon County. The pageant began at 6 p.m. with a total of 13 young girls participating. After the audience was welcomed to the event, the national anthem was performed and they jumped right into the competition.
The pageant started with the girl’s outfit of choice and athletic wear. This is where the contestants walked across the stage in an outfit that best embodies them individually. The next stage of competition was talent, featuring dancing, singing and other great performances. The final portion of competing was the formal wear and on stage question. All of the contestants were able to float across the stage in a dazzling gown and answer a simple question. The Junior Miss contestants were asked an additional question about their Day of Service.
Throughout the evening, there were performances from the 2019 Carbon County Royalty. The judges were also given an introduction.
Every contestant that competed that evening received a small prize and a flower. Then, the time came to crown the new 2020 Miss Carbon County Royalty. Mini Miss Carbon County of 2019, Darbee Montgomery, passed her crown to Taylee Brower. The other girls in the Mini Miss pageant were McKenna Smith, Makyla Labrum and Berlynn Axelgard.
Burcklee Brady, 2019 Little Miss, gave her crown to Bentley Bennett. Little Miss Bennett will have the opportunity to accompany the new Miss Carbon County at the Miss Utah competition in June 2020. The contestants competing in that age group were Paizley Olsen, Hailee Wise and Evey Leonard.
The title of the Junior Miss was passed from Tatum Tatton to Megan Roberts. Roberts’ day of service is called The First 24 hours. She aspires to make a 24-hour essential kit for children in foster care. Her competitors were Alana Cruz-Bejarano, Italia Dunn, Ivy Beecher and Blayr Bennett.
These winning girls then participated in the Outstanding Teen and Miss Carbon County pageants on Saturday.
