I know Madison and Allie are going to represent our County very well this year” added Pageant Director, Kristen Atchley.
Miss Scott County, Madison Patrick briefly describes her experience.
What was your first thought when your name was called? Once my name was called I am pretty sure I was smiling from ear to ear. I’ve worked hard and I feel honored to represent my hometown and Scott County this year.
How are you feeling about your upcoming year? This year is already getting busy. I have my first appearance Thursday where I will be handing out ribbons for the livestock judging. I’m so excited for what is to come this year!
How are you going to prepare yourself for the state pageant? Preparing for the state fair pageant has already began. My head shots and paperwork is currently in transit to the state fair. Interview and stage presence takes a lot of perfecting and I couldn’t have a better pageant director, Kristen Atchley, to help me and Allie prepare for State.
