NEW BERLIN – A tradition that’s more than half-a-century old, the New Berlin Youth Days took to the stage in style last night with the 51st annual Miss Youth Days Pageant, a celebration of the town’s – and surrounding municipalities – aspiring fashionistas.
Miss Youth Days Pageant organizer Sheila Randall, who’s been involved with the popular event for 15 years now, said this year’s contestants – as always – were in high spirits. A total of 20 young ladies participated in the annual beauty pageant, in three categories: Little Miss Youth Days, Junior Miss Youth Days and Miss Youth Days. The contestants are judged on their presentation, appearance, interview and personality.
“This is a young group, but they’re definitely high-spirited,” said Randall. “It’s something I enjoy doing ... I really enjoy working with the youth.”
