Taylor Blackwell, 11, of Frankford was crowned as the 2013 Pre Jr. Miss Hannibal Saturday, Oct. 13 in Hannibal.
Pre Jr. Miss Hannibal was one of the many age division competitions held during the recent Miss Hannibal Pageant. Each division’s contestants were judged on several categories: interview, talent, active wear and evening gown.
Blackwell’s talent was a vocal performance to “American Trilogy.” She was acknowledged on stage for winning active wear, talent and interview for her age division and also received the photogenic award.
Taylor is the daughter of Troy and Amy Blackwell of Frankford and is in the sixth grade at Bowling Green Middle School. She is the granddaughter of Ethel Worthington of Bowling Green and the late Frank Worthington and Pat Blackwell of Frankford and the late Jerry Blackwell.
She will compete for the Pre Jr. Miss State title in July 2013.
