DC Takes 3rd-Runner Up at National Sweetheart Pageant

Apparently the pageant world is confusing to those on the outside. I say “apparently” because I’m constantly amazed by how many people ask me the difference between Miss America and Miss USA. Example: Miss DC goes to Miss America, Miss DC USA goes to Miss USA. Doesn’t seem that confusing to me. Maybe I’m a genious!

Anyway, to further confuse matters, the 1st Runners Up (or another runner-up if the 1st chooses not to participate) at the Miss America state pageants are invited to compete at the National Sweetheart Pageant in Hoopeston, Illinois.

Our very own District of Columbia representative, Michelle Crosby, not only came in 3rd Runner Up at Miss National Sweetheart, she won the Interview preliminary! Hugest of congratulations to Michelle for such an outstanding performance. You made us all proud!
