Miss Sun Fun USA Pageant

I attended the 2010 Miss Sun Fun Pageants (photos coming soon!). This was my first experience at a Miss USA preliminary... Thirty-seven contestants competed for the titles of 2010 Miss Sun Fun and 2010 Miss Sun Fun Teen in conjunction with the 58th annual Sun Fun Festival.

The pageant was held at 6:30 p.m. on June 6 at the Myrtle Beach High School auditorium. This year’s theme is “Jewels of the Sea.”
All contestants were judged in three equally weighted categories: swimsuit, evening gown and interview. Important qualities include poise, personality, beauty of face and figure and the ability to speak articulately about the Grand Strand area, the release said.

Pageant winners will compete, expenses paid, in the Miss South Carolina USA and Miss South Carolina Teen USA pageants. Miss Sun Fun and Miss Sun Fun Teen also will represent the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, its member businesses and the Grand Strand throughout their reigns, participating in festivals, promotional trips and local events.

I had the pleasure of meeting the hosts of the pageants, Miss South Carolina USA 2009 Stephanie Smith (emcee) and reigning queens Miss Sun Fun 2009 Leah Hickman and Miss Sun Fun Teen 2009 Courtney Sellers. I also met Miss South Carolina Teen USA 2009 Mary Helen Caver who also attended as visiting queen.

Congratulations to Jenny Price, Miss Sun Fun 2010, and Hillary Bradshaw, Miss Sun Fun Teen 2010! They were both very beautiful and poised on stage!
