Summer 1998: Miss American Starlet National Pageant, Palm Springs, CA. I received the title of "Jeans Queen" in the western-themed event, and a $500.00 savings bond. Some photos of the various categories I entered are below.
This was a tap to "Cowboy Joe" (see a movie clip
World Championship site
A jazz dance to a James Bond theme
A very energetic ethnic dance called "Zambula"
My lyrical number to "The Lord's Prayer" was done in sign language.
This was the "sportswear" category. FYI, this category can be a little misleading.
Most pageants mean "something you would wear to a sporting event",
not "something you wear to play sports".
This was the "runway casual" event.
The swimsuit competition...
The "best western attire" competition
Special competition for "Jeans Queen", which I won with this outfit.
Last but not least, the gown competition.
Our friend, Barbe McClung, made my red and white
