Round Lake Area Pageant 2014
At a fun-filled gala event, this years judges selected the new Round Lake Area Queens for 2014 from a terrific group of contestants. The evening kicked off at 6:30 and was once again held at the Round Lake Beach Cultural & Civic Center. Pageant Director Rashel Tosado welcomed the large crowd and then proceeded with the contestant introductions as well as the judges and tabulator. The 2013 Queens were escorted from behind the stage and took their seats as the competition began. First up was the “Fairwear & Speech Competition” as each contestant strutted across the stage and then made their personal speech to impress the judges. That was followed by acknowledging the visiting Royalty (Queens) from other areas. While this was going on the contestants all changed into their formal wear and returned to the stage to answer a “pop question”. A short video was shown of the outgoing Queens year of events that they attended while the judges made their decisions and the votes were tabulated. Once the results were complete, Pageant Director Tosado announced the runner-ups and the winners.
Representing the Round Lake Area for 2014 will be:
Miss Round Lake = Jenni Nguyen (contestant #2)
Junior Miss = Maddie Hendrickson (contestant #6)
Little Miss = Darby Leetch (contestant #5)
The following video does not include the winners being announced or crowned since I accidentally hit the single photo button instead of the record button after the short video presentation of the outgoing queens. You can identify the winners in the above group photos by their assigned number, counting from left to right.
