I think that most of you know that I have a fierce love for pageants. Not that I have ever competed in anything like it. I think the closest I came might have been the School Spelling Bee, in which I proudly took third. I will watch any and every pageant. If I know it's on, I'll be watching.
Well this Saturday is the mother of all pageants, The Miss America Scholarship Pageant (had to throw the scholarship in there to somehow justify, however, unneeded.) I wanted to get this post out early so you could all do your research to decide on your favorite candidate. I have included two of particular interest. Any other states you wish to inquire about may be found here.
Drum roll please.
