MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/25/13) – Taylor Logan, 12 of Madisonville will be competing with other contestants from throughout the nation in this year’s America’s Queen of the Commonwealth National Pageant. The pageant finals are being held Sunday, October 13, 2013 at 10:00 am at the Ursuline Arts Center, 3113 Lexington Rd, Louisville, KY 40206.
Miss Logan is returning to defend her 2012 title as America’s JR. Queen of the Commonwealth after winning the title last fall in Bardstown, Ky.
The Queen of the Commonwealth National Pageant is also a shelter supply drive this year for the Woodstock Animal Foundation. Each contestant is required to donate a minimum of 15 items to the organization during pageant weekend. Miss Logan has collected dog food which she donated to the Hopkins County Humane Society, and volunteers at various events around the tri-state.
The Queen of the Commonwealth National Pageant is open to females of all ages. Contestants are required to compete in formal wear, personal introduction in outfit of choice, and their choice of optional competition, including: judges’ interview, talent, casual wear, and photogenic. A winner, first, and second runner up will be awarded in each of the 10 age divisions. Based upon the amount of her community involvement, a contestant may be awarded the prestigious title of Philanthropy Queen or Humanitarian Queen. A Supreme Queen will also be awarded a $1000.00 cash scholarship. More than 17 titles will be awarded to very deserving females this year.
The Queen of the Commonwealth Program exists to give females of all ages a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which they can express their talents, intelligence, and opinions on culture, politics and the community. Queen of the Commonwealth Queens are involved at the local level with organizations such as Kosair Children’s Hospital, Toys for Tots, Relay for Life, the Wounded Warrior Project, and countless animal shelters.
The pageant is proud to support The Bully Police, The National Bullying Prevention Center, ASPCA, and the Humane Society of the United States.
