The preliminary competitions for Little Miss North Carolina are Friday at 6:00 p.m. for Beauty and Talent.

For the 12th year, the reigning Queens of the Little Miss and Teen Miss North Carolina State Pageant have successfully raised money for the Masonic Home for Children at Oxford.

Now in its 25th year, the pageant is a youth development program promoting excellence in personal development, scholastic achievement, interview skills and the performing arts.

Past Queens, including Miss North Carolina 1998, Kelli Bradshaw, and recently crowned Miss North Carolina 2011, Hailey Best, have gone on to become professional entertainers, lawyers, models, reporters and business owners. Contestants from across the state will compete for more than $25,000 in prizes.

Choreographers for the event are Teresa and Shana Godwin of High County IMPACT Dancers in Boone. The Master of Ceremonies will be the State Director, Carolyn Marley of Blowing Rock.
