Twenty-five contestants competed in front of a packed auditorium recently for the title of Miss Northview High School 2008.
The pageant consisted of the introduction of contestants, a physical fitness routine and the formal category.
During intermission, judges made selections and narrowed the field to five contestants.
Those chosen as the top five were Summer Sanders, Shakeria White, Katie Mann, Amber Holland and Chelsea Sims.
Following the introduction of the finalists, each contestant was required to answer a question from the judges on stage.
Following the question and answer period by contestants, judges excused themselves to make their final decisions.
Carley Hetrick provided entertainment while the judges deliberated, and by the time she finished her second song, the suspense had the audience at the edges of their seats.
Awards were given for four girls before the winner was announced.
Miss Congeniality was awarded to junior Ashley Snow.
Tiffany Barrows, a sophomore, was named Miss Hospitality.
Amber Holland, a junior, received the title of Miss Physical Fitness.
Miss Poise and Appearance went to junior Ashley McGhee.
The title of second runner-up was awarded to Summer Sanders.
