Hagerstown girl, 3, competes in pageant at Valley Mall

April 20, 2008

Rhylee Arianna Gangestad, 3, of Hagerstown, competed in the Sunburst Pageant at Valley Mall in early February.

The pageant, led by Pat Welch, is for children from Maryland, Delaware and Virginia.

Rhylee won medals and trophies for prettiest hair, eyes, smile and personality along with most photogenic and beauty queen for her age at the mall competition.

That qualified her for a competition in Richmond, Va., where she took first place for supermodel search, second place for swim suit and second place overall for Maryland.

She next heads to the finals in Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 1-3.

Her mom, Tammy Gangestad, is hoping some local businesses would be willing to help sponsor her in the Parade of Beauties book that is distributed on a national level.

Some local businesses which have already contributed include Rita's Italian Ice of Hagerstown, Neil's Auto Body, Greencastle (Pa.) Kitchen and Floors, Rocky's New York Pizza of Smithsburg, and Domino's of Frederick, Md., along with family members.
