From gorgeous dresses to top notch talent the Miss Ohio 2014 contestants were all but ordinary for Thursday nights Preliminaries.

The evening started with Sue Swinehart handing out the Duke of Edinburgh awards. All contestants received a bronze, silver or gold metal depending on the amount of community service they had completed. Ohio has not had a gold medal winner since Ellen Bryan in 2012. This year, we awarded two gold medalist; Mackenzie Bart and Samantha Hartings.

The night then followed with a surprise visit from Miss Illinois. As she was introduced to the stage, current Miss Ohio, Heather Wells literally fell to the floor with disbelief and excitement.

As the night continued into the swimsuit portion, the girls explained all of their healthy habits. One that caught my eye was Chelsi Howman as she explained that her favorite form of exercise is playing racquetball with her little brother.

When the contestants came out for the talent portion, so did the goose bumps. Each girl was extremely talented in each performance from Grace Stammen’s cover of When I Look at You to Mackenzie Bart’s ventriloquism act.

As the crowd and I were enjoying every minute of the night, the teens and Little Princesses came out to perform for us. They were all full of smiles and enthusiasm as they danced.

Following was elegant wear. Alexis Richter came out in a beautiful sparkling white dress that caught my eye right off the bat. Allison Goodwin’s dress reminded me of a shining star as the top was full of sparkle. All contestants were escorted by members of the US Marines which gave us all a little thought of why we were able to have the event in the first place.

The last competition of the night was Q&A. Each lady from the Cardinal Flight was asked a question from her platform. Camille Dyquiangco’s answer to her question about health was very well put.

“I think it’s important to take care of yourself and to stay healthy by knowing what I am putting in my body is beneficial to me,” she exclaimed.

The night was also full of performances by others than the contestants.

Heather Wells was welcomed on stage for the last time to perform her dance routine. She had also made up all of the choreography for the show. Her routine was flawless and the crowd was more than pleased.

Throughout the night singers and dancers took to the stage and kept our attention with many popular ballads. Their rendition of Hallelujah was so perfect I could feel myself tearing up.
