Best of Luck to the Miss Lake Festival Program!

Tomorrow night the Celina Field House will be packed, as twelve thousand dollars in scholarships and one glittering crowned are given out!  Miss Lake Festival is a preliminary pageant closed to women of Mercer County; it is held on a Monday so the winner and her court can prepare to reign over this weekends festival.    Both Miss Ohio, Ellen Bryan (a former Miss Lake Festival) and nearby resident Miss Ohio's Outstanding Teen, Kelsey Barrett will be on hand!  

The outgoing Miss Lake Festival is the sensational Devon Stansbury!  She first competed at Miss Ohio in 2010 with a Sweeps title, Miss Mohican Valley, before earning her home county crown.  Devon has danced all her life and studies at the University of Cincinnati; learn more at her new BLOG!   

Ellen Bryan will host, with Devon Stansbury and Grace Stammen.  Seven women will compete for Devon's title.  For what it's worth, my money is on Jena Sweigart or former teen contestant Emily Werling!
