Preliminary Rounds Start For Miss West Virginia Pageant

The Executive Director of the Miss West Virginia Pageant says a lot goes into getting ready for the competition.

"Contestants compete in different phases of competition, private interviews, swimsuit, evening gown, talent and on stage questions," Leah Summers said on Tuesday’s MetroNews Talkline.

"We told them that they should already be ready to compete at Miss America because one of them will be doing that in January."

In all, 24 women are competing for the Miss West Virginia title this week, while 20 girls are in the running for Miss West Virginia’s Outstanding Teen.

The preliminary rounds started on Tuesday at the Morgantown Event Center.  The winner will be crowned on Friday night.

"Some of them have been thinking about this as a goal for years and they spend, hopefully, preparing for all phases of competition," Summers said of the contestants.
