An Exclusive Look At Miss Montana USA: Part 1

Posted: Updated:

The Miss Montana USA Pageant was this weekend and ladies from all over the Treasure State converged on Missoula to compete for the crown.  While these events can often come with stereotypes attached, these young women were here to show off their confidence, poise, health and intelligence.

Hundreds of supporters showed up to support their favorite contestants, complete with loud cheers and colorful signs.  With the house packed, the pageant was ready to go.

The entire competition is broken down into a series of judged events.  To start off, the ladies introduced themselves and participated in a group dance number, and then it was down to business.  Healthy bodies were on display during the swimsuit portion while elegance and poise were key during evening gown.  Intelligence and quick wit became crucial during the interview.

The hardest part of the whole night were the cuts.  Only so many young women can make it to the next round, so some contestants were filled with joy while other fought to hold in the disappointment.

At the end of the night, two winners were chosen from the Miss and Teen groups and they could barely contain their excitement.

It's not over for our winners.  They have a year reigning as champion while also representing our state at the national level.

While most people see what happens on stage for a pageant, we have an exclusive behind the scenes look for you tomorrow night, so you won't want to miss it.
