Little Miss Logan County contestants prepare for pageant -- Album 2

[Click on photos below to enlarge.]

Sunday evening at the end of their mandatory practice in preparation for the Little Miss Logan County competition next week, 15 little darlings learned a variety of things they would need to know in order to present themselves well in front of the judges.

At the end of their practice, Julie Cooper who is the co-director of the Little Miss competition and a preschool teacher by profession, took the little girls into a quiet spot and explained to them that at the end of the competition they would all be given gifts, but only one would be crowned Little Miss.

She emphasized to them that as competitors, they are all winners, and we at Lincoln Daily News couldn't agree more. Save these pictures, folks, because you are looking as the next generation of Logan County Fair queens.

Standing perfectly still in a straight line looks easy, but when you're 4, 5, 6 and 7 years old, in front of hundreds of people, it is harder than one might think.

Julie Cooper explains what will happen at the end of the evening. All contestants receive prizes for their participation, but only one will be crowned.


Little Miss Dani Phillips watches as the little girls listen to Cooper.

Taking it all in.


"When I win, Iíll put my hands up like I'm so surprised!"
"Uh-huh, you mean when I win."

"Rule number one: Always be ready for the camera!"



"I guess we'll have to get used to paparazzi."

Supportive parents greet their little girls after the practice.
