The Miss Cabarrus County Youth Pageant, directed by Michelle Trombley, was held Sept. 25 at Kannapolis Middle School. Kristin Billings was the emcee for the event.
Five judges had to choose the 2021 queens. Depending on age division, the competition phases included interview, photogenic, party dress/evening gown and talent.
The pageant featured special guest performances from Taylor Foley and Let’s Dance studio as well as the 2020 reigning queens.
Special award recognition went to Mckinlee Long for the Majestic title and Chasity Riley Spirit Award/Interview. Alivia Heath won the Alan E. Haney Overall Talent Award. Presley SanFilippo won the People’s Choice Award.
Nicole Hinson, Abigail Coble and Harper Manigan were chosen as Ambassador Queens to serve another year on the court based on character, passion for the organization, participation during their reign and a written essay.
Seven queens for the 2021 year were chosen as well as three Ambassador Queens. Organization officials said they were excited to begin a year full of community service as the queens represent their title and reach out to Cabarrus County and surrounding areas.
