People's Choice Award Online Voting!

At this year’s pageant we are holding a special fundraiser called the People’s Choice Award. Online and onsite, we will be collecting your votes for your favorite contestant for the People’s Choice Award. $1.00 = 1 vote and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to this year's selected charity, Smile Train, an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.

Voting will take place online and onsite right up to the start of the Pageant Finals on Sunday afternoon. Cast your votes before the finals show begins at 4pm in order for your votes to count! During the awards portion of the Pageant Finals, we will announce the People’s Choice Award winner!
