Local girl seeks title of National American Miss

CJ-0724-natlmiss-2CHOUSTON – Lakendra Montgomery, 12, is a young girl but she has big dreams.

Montgomery will compete in the National American Miss pageant Aug. 30 in Jackson with hopes of advancing to the finals in California later this fall.
Montgomery is soliciting sponsors to help further her quest as all expenses must be paid by the contestant.
“There’s registration and a dress,” Montgomery said.
She will be also be responsible for the cost of her interview outfit, transportation and lodging.
This is Montgomery’s second time to participate in the event.
“In the first one, I didn’t make it to California, but I had fun,” Montgomery said.
In addition to competing in the pageant wear and interview categories, there are optional categories for talent, modeling or acting. Montgomery has decided to enter the acting category but has not yet decided on the role she will play.
“I’m still picking out my scene,” Montgomery said.
Winning in the Jackson pageant would qualify her to compete at the national pageant in California and includes a trip to Disneyland.
