Miss Aquafest 2009 crowns this year’s Miss Aquafest Crystal Wartinger.
The Miss Aquafest Pageant was held last weekend with the optionals event at Team Fitness on Saturday night and the finals program at the PAC at Lake Stevens High School on Sunday.
Twenty-seven girls ages four to 18 walked, performed and interviewed before two different panels of judges for the opportunity to represent Lake Stevens during this year’s Aquafest festivities and at many other events around the state.
These girls were also judged on academics, community service and how much food they collected to give to the Lake Stevens Food Bank. Over 3,000 food items were counted and will be delivered to the food bank this week.
