Shenandoah Royalty for 2022 has been crowned and will represent the city over the next year.
The Shenandoah Rotary Club sponsored the 2022 Miss and Little Miss Shenandoah Pageant, which was held at the Gladys Wirsig-Jones Auditorium at the Shenandoah High School on Sunday, Sept. 18. Carys Woolsey was crowned Miss Shenandoah, with Auri Trowbridge as the first runner-up, Rachel Jones as the second runner-up and Caitlyn Jones named Miss Congeniality. Bryleigh Bowers was crowned Little Miss Shenandoah, with Briseis Kamila Sunderman as first runner-up, Aurora Dawson as second runner-up and Josie Wooten Little Miss Congeniality.
Seven contestants competed for Miss Shenandoah and 30 contestants for Little Miss Shenandoah. Before the pageant, each contestant had one-on-one interviews with a panel of four judges and then each answered additional questions on stage during the pageant. Contestants were judged on communication skills, poise, personality, stage appearance and ability to represent Shenandoah positively.
