After a year's hiatus I've decided to get the blog up and running again for the 2019 state pageant season. Hope you'll follow along!
ALASKA is the first pageant up this year, being held almost a month prior to the main state pageant run kicking off. Great to see that contestant photos have been shared on Facebook this year! There are 5 Teen contestants and 11 Miss contestants.
In the Miss division, Whitney Williams, Miss Alaska Teen USA 2014 is competing in the Miss division for the first time. She is only the second Alaska teen in recent years to return & compete at Miss AK USA. Five-time finalist Brandy Kellner, whose highest placement was 2RU last year, is back, as is three-time finalist JoEllen Walters who was 1RU in 2015. In fact, three of the 2015 top five finalists are competing: JoEllen (1RU), Brandy (3RU) and Angelica McFeron (4RU).
In Teen, last year's second runner-up Danielle Stam, who was Miss Alaska's Outstanding Teen 2016, is the only contestant I recognise.
