It’s going to be an interesting, dazzling evening when the Nevada Princess Pageant and the Mrs. Nevada-America Pageant will be held at the Suncoast Showroom.
Eight accomplished local ladies will vie for the Mrs. Nevada pageant at the Suncoast tomorrow at 7 p.m.. They include: Mrs. Green Valley, Dacia Metsker, Mrs. Southern Highlands, Lucy Greger, Mrs. Red Rock, Ruth Gray, Mrs. Summerlin, Natasha Isom-Stratton, Mrs. Seven Hills, Sephora Louder, Mrs. North Las Vegas, Tanice Smith and, of course, Mrs. Las Vegas, Katie Ladomerszky. This should be a fun evening on many levels. Many of these ladies cross paths throughout the year at charity and work-related events and are close professionally and personally.
Locals and pageant followers may remember Mrs. Red Rock, who was the first Palms Girl winner with her equally lovely sister Ryan Wahrenbrock in 2004.
The newly crowned Mrs. Nevada-America 2013 will receive a prize package valued at more than $20,000 and the official crown of the Mrs. Nevada-America Pageant, presented by the reigning Mrs. Nevada-America 2012, Kristie Gulia-Jelinsky. The newly crowned Mrs. Nevada-America will go on to compete in this year’s Mrs. America Pageant, to be held at the Loew’s Ventana Resort in Tucson, Arizona, August 28, 2013.
The Nevada Princess Pageant will start at 2 p.m., includes divisions of Little Miss, ages 4 to 6; Young Miss, ages 7 to 9; Pre-Teen, ages 10 to 12; and Teen, ages 13 to 16. In each division, entrants will compete in the categories of evening gown, on-stage introduction and interview with the judges. The winning Princesses will each receive a crown, sash and prize package including a sterling silver princess tiara necklace.
“People’s Choice” will additionally be awarded to one lucky Nevada Princess and Mrs. Nevada-America contestant.
