Best of Luck to Miss Miami Valley!

Tonight Miss Miami Valley will take place at 7 p.m. in Dayton! The pageant is held at the Montgomery County Fair, meaning an admission fee of only $4 grants you access to deep fried delights, questionably constructed spinning rides, adorable baby livestock and a bevy of beauties vying for scholarships and a trip to Miss Ohio!

The outgoing titleholder is vocalist, Ellen Bryan. She is a student at Ball State University and has proven to be a consistent competitor at Miss Ohio. In 2009 she debuted in Mansfield as Miss Lake Festival and was named 4th Runner-up. This summer as Miss Miami Valley Ellen moved up one spot to 3rd Runner-up; she also won the coveted $1,000 Miss America Community Service award for her work with Lightning Awareness! I've been told Miss Ohio, Becky Minger will also be in attendance and perform.
