Keeley Sawyer was crowned on March 11th as Miss Chicago Outstanding Teen 2012 which now qualifies her to compete in the Miss Illinois Outstanding Teen Pageant. The event was made even more special when Keely’s win was announced by Hannah Smith, the current reigning Miss Illinois who also dances with the Beth Fowler Dance Company in Genoa and St. Charles.
Prior to this year, Keeley did not have experience with pageant competition, but has been dancing with Beth Fowler for the past 13 years, since she was three years old. Neither Hannah nor Keeley had pagaent experience or competition experience but soon found that with their dance training they could do well.
The Beth Fowler Dance Company has been asked to perform as part of the entertainment at this year’s Miss Illinois Pageant to be held this June in Marion, Illinois. Hannah will be crowning the new Miss Illinois while Keeley will be competing for the title of Miss Illinois Outstanding Teen 2012 on June 30th 2012.
