An Eastern Kentucky University student was crowned Miss Boyle County Fair Sunday night and will advance to the state-level competition in Louisville later this year.
Kelsey White, a 2011 graduate of MadisonCentral High School in Richmond, was one of 18 young women who competed for the crown on the stage at Boyle County High School. Judges scored each contestant on her Western wear, evening gown and interview.
Lyndsey Cooke, a junior at Boyle County High School, was crowned “Miss Boyle County.” Pageant judges select this title in the event the contestant with the highest score does not live in Boyle County. While Cooke will not go to the state pageant, she will represent the county at public events and parades. Cooke’s fellow contestants named her “Miss Congeniality” for being the most helpful and friendly to them.
The pageant’s first runner-up was Julia Springate, a student at Centre College, and the second runner-up was Western Kentucky University student AmyCarrell. Carrell also received a trophy for “Highest Interview Score.”
Olivia Nichols of Harrodsburg was honored for having the highest score in the evening gown part of the competition.
