Queen Calla Kaufmann gave a speech about her grandmother and her adventures in business with Stevens School of Dance. First Runner Up Maurissa Moulton is the sister of 1998 Queen Kendra Moulton. We photographed Kendy’s wedding reception back in our newspaper days, and photographed the weddings both her brother-in-law and sister-in-law in the past year. We’ve also photographed the wedding of 2006 Queen Sherie Kording and senior photos for 2008 Queen Amanda Jo Tendick.

We were proud to be a little part of the lobbying effort that garnered Catherine Rose Ott the People’s Choice Award for Princess. Her mother, Anita, bought some extra photo cards and handed them out to people as she looked for votes. That’s probably what put her over the top.

In the Little Miss contest, Grace Elizabeth Newman was named Princess; Camille Lauren Brown won First Runner-up; Taylor Renee Larsen won the People’s Choice Award and was named Second Runner-up; Ella Grace Stremming won Best Stage Presence; and Macy Danielle Hansen won Best Interview.

Grace accented her evening dress with a cast on her left arm. While playing tag with her little brother the week before the fair she tried to jump a ditch, but came up a bit short and shattered her elbow. Even after surgery to put in a plate and eight screws, she fought back to be on the 4th of July parade float and to compete in the pageant. Her mother Andrea (Kirkpatrick) Newman has a history with the Morgan County Pageant, winning Little Miss in 1983 and Queen in 1997.
