South Dakota top five montages

The top five montages pages were one of the first sections on my original website and something I have always loved creating. They're a great way to follow your favourite contestants' progress through the the years and look back at where winners and runners-up got their start. While not all years are available, the top five montages are still an integral part of my Miss USA and Teen USA state pageant archive.
