Today in Portsmouth the second oldest Miss Ohio local pageant is continuing its legacy as five young women compete for Amber Bussa's title. Amber is a vocalist and student at Ohio State University. The same is true of her sister-titleholder, Miss Scioto Valley, Alyssa Hanson. Unfortunately there are only enough contestants to give the Miss Portsmouth crown, but ED Greg Davis has alluded to the possibility of holding another pageant in the spring.
Tonight a teen title will also be given! The pageant will begin at 7:30 at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts at Shawnee State University. Below: 08/09 titleholders and ED Greg Davis:
