A young woman’s year full of training and boots-on-the-ground service will be capped with a crown June 15 at the annual Miss Utah Pageant. Every year each city sends its title holder to compete in the pageant, a week-long process where the girls surrender their phones and go head-to-head in a different event each night. The winner will go on to compete in Miss America Sept. 9, and the rest of the girls will head home.
Emily Smith and Whitney Royal were selected as finalists for the Sego Awards. The awards were announced May 11, 2018, with Emily Smith taking second place in the Student Founder category for her company Mentionables.
