Letter to the Editor:  Reader Voices Concerns Over Little Junior Miss Pageant

web posted April 18, 2016
Dear Editor,
I was unaware of how rare it is for an African American little girl to win the Edgefield County Little Miss Pageant. I will definitely do my research from this point forward. Had I known this huge fact I would not have entered my daughter.

All six of the judges were white and in my opinion they already knew before the pageant started who was going to win. There were 10 contestants  in the Wee Junior Miss category and one winner and one runner up was chosen. Needless to say that was the largest group.

In the Little Junior Miss group there were 6 contestants. Only one winner and one runner up. In the Young Junior Miss group there were 3 contestants and each of them won. Of course the winner and 2 runner ups out of 3 children. It just so happened to be an extra trophy.

I feel as though that tie was done to include at least one African American therefore, it would encourage more to continue to participate and for it to look good. But I don't recommend any African Americans to participate in this pageant because it wasn't judged fairly. So in future please do research on the history of the pageants winners before entering yours because that could be a huge clue as to who they are looking for.

All the kids who participated did great. Congrats to winners. Next year my daughter will not be participating in this one. There are others you just have to do the research.
