Miss Iowa Royalty Comes Together for Sister Queen Bonding

At National American Miss we absolutely love to see the bonds that grow between sister queens. It is a relationship that lasts a lifetime. As you know sometimes sister queens can live clear across the state, but taking advantage of the time together when you can is important. I just learned of a story about our Miss Iowa Queens that took place earlier this year and it made my heart melt! 

The Iowa Royalty tried participating in the Iowa State Fair Parade in the fall, but were rained out. Instead of letting the rain get them down they decided to make light of the situation. The Iowa Royalty came together to have a fun slumber party in Des Moines and scheduled their royalty photo shoot the very next day. The girls had a blast. In attendance were Miss Iowa Princess Madilynn Mandelkow, Miss Iowa Jr. Pre-Teen Charlotte Lange, Miss Iowa Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Girl Zyrianna Cerna-Koehrsen, Miss Iowa Pre-Teen May Chup, Miss Iowa Junior Teen Kristen Hovda, Miss Iowa Junior Teen Cover Girl Holly Egdorf, and Miss IA Teen Queen Molli Wise.

The friendships that have blossomed are ones to be cherished!

Miss Missouri Teen Honored at Fashion Show and Parades

Your Miss Missouri Teen, Jessica Hanner, had to opportunity to meet designer Tobie Roberts. Tobie presented her new clothing line, Oliviet, which is a branch of her original line Tobie Marie, at the store Natalie M in Overland Park, Kansas.

"She is so talented and the models all looked beautiful," Jessica said. "While I was there, I ran into my sister queen, Laci, who is Miss Missouri Jr. Pre-Teen. I had fun talking and volunteering with her!" 

Jessica had the opportunity to mix and mingle with other royalty, models and designers and enjoyed getting to see some awesome new designs. 

Earlier in the year Jessica was able to be featured in North Platte's Homecoming Parade. Her and her family used to live in Dearborn and it has become a tradition for them to go every year. In addition, she was honored to participate in the Overland Park Parade with one of her good friends. Jessica wanted to give a special thank you to Natalie M and Lisa Carson for inviting her to the parade and making it all happen! And as always, she wanted to extend a thanks to her supportive brother and mother!
