Miss LHS Pageant

The Miss LHS Pageant occurred at the Lambert Auditorium on October 30th at 6:30pm. DECA held this event and gave part of the benefits to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This year’s Miss LHS Pageant was the 6th annual pageant held at LHS. The students participating in the completion worked hard to practice and bought business, casual, and formal outfits to wear. However, not every student that applied for the pageant may compete. Miss LHS Pageant only accepted 10 freshman, 10 sophomores, 10 juniors, and 15 seniors for a total of 45 participants.

The competitors had the chance to earn a large sum of money towards a scholarship. The Miss LHS Princess earned $100 as well as the Jr. Miss LHS. The runner up for Miss LHS won $300 and the actual Miss LHS 2014 won a total of $1000. It doesn’t come without hard work though. To apply for the completion each student submitted an essay, application, and have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. There are a total of 12 different titles up for grabs at the pageant. The pageant is a way to represent the girls unique fashion sense through the production and their personality through the essay.

By the end of the night, they raised an impressive $1,727.00 to go to help further research of Diabetes. The following awards were presents to these Longhorns:
