And Miss Honey is a busy bee, again and again….
Susan Page Modeling will be producing the 4th Annual Miss Hawaii Princess on Saturday, May 26th at the Leeward Community College Theater. Just like the Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii Pageant this past March, the pageant will also be under the direction of one of my favorite people in the world, Ms. Marybeth Jenkins… as well as yours truly, which explains the buzzing honey bee.
There are three age divisions:
Miss Hawaii Preteen Princess 2012 (ages 9-11 years old, 12 delegates)
Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2012 (ages 12-14 years old, 7 delegates)
Miss Hawaii Teen Princess 2012 (ages 15-18 years old, 6 delegates)
A total of twenty five delegates will be judged in Fitnesswear/Swimwear, Talent/Spokesmodel, Evening Gown and Interview phases of competition. Three of these beautiful young women will be crowned the queen in their respected age groups. The very impressive panel of judges includes an international hula dancer, an actor and fashion magnate, a stylist, author, and model/actress.
Performances during the pageant include Pas Des Deux Hawaii (Owned and Directed by Disney Imagineer’s Wendy Gilbert), the current Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Beauty 2012 Sheera Tamura, the newly crowned Ms. Armed Forces Hawaii 2012 Jennifer Glass, and the reigning Miss Hawaii Princesses themselves- Miss Hawaii Preteen Princess 2011 Tamlyn Sasaki, Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2011 Atheena Arasoo, and Miss Hawaii Teen Princess 2011 Gwendolyn Kenwright. The current Princesses will also be delivering their farewell speeches before they crown their successors.
Former titleholders will be making a special appearance at the pageant- the beautiful Jasmine Graffis, the first Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2009, and her successor, the alluring Elisabeth Levine, Miss Hawaii Jr. Teen Princess 2010. I have been blessed with the opportunity to take these two beautiful young women under my wings, and I am SO very proud of what they have accomplished.
In the middle of all the stress, and the hard work put into producing and directing a pageant, every speck of energy into making this event successful is worth it. The second we see the girls onstage, and feel the excitement of the parents, friends, and family members supporting the contestants, we forget it all. We forget the madness…the infuriating little details and silly hoops we had to jump through to put this thing together. The contestants just shine onstage!
That is why I love pageants. Pageants are positive, life changing experiences for young women. It’s empowering to know that beauty is not skin deep, that you can wear a dress and a crown…and still make a difference…even if you’re wearing 5 inch heels.
Tickets are $25 Pre-Sale Price per person, children 4 years and under are free.
