Girls ages of 4-14 competed in the pageant, which took place at the Peterson Dance Hall in Fairview on Saturday, March 10.

A lot of time and effort goes into making such a pageant run. Marcy Curtis, pageant co-director, said, “I hope, if anything, each one of these girls grew stronger with the pageant. I hope that friendships were made to last a lifetime.”
Marcy also said this pageant was started eight years ago to help build the self-confidence of girls in Fairview and to help encourage them to try out for Miss Fairview when they were of age.
The pageant committee said they have watched several girls go from barely daring to peek their heads through the curtains to being in royalties, on cheer teams and so much more.
