"You can feel the excitement as contestants prepare for the runway, putting finishing touches on make-up and gowns. Their contagious smiles are bubbling with joy. It is the 3rd Annual Pageant of Hope, a pageant for young ladies with special needs. On this stage, on this night, the spotlight shines on abilities not disabilities. Meet Hanna Maslowski of Blaine, Minnesota, founder/organizer of Pageant of Hope and hear how Hanna was transformed from a shy, non-verbal child, into a confident, 
outgoing young woman."

The Pageant of Hope is not only a life changing experience for the Princesses and Families but also for Neil and Katie, who met at the first annual Pageant of Hope.  At the third annual Pageant on Saturday, March 24th, Neil asked Katie to spend the rest of their lifes together in front of over 500 guests.

Congratulations!

You have won the ‘Queen’s Award’

This award is given to groups who best portray their community event or festival theme in an outstanding parade presentation.

Pageant of Hope ranked excellent in all of these categories. Your participation was spectacular on the route and an inspiration for many attendees at this year’s Aquatennial Torchlight Parade.



The Pageant of Hope's very own princess Julia Hendrickson had some of her very valuable and personal items stolen from her at school.  She spoke out for the community to realize not only were those personal belongings to Julia, but they also helped her manage the daily tasks she has at hand with blocking out noise on the bus, etc..  Please take a moment and watch her Fox 9 News interview.  The Pageant is very proud of Julia holding her head high, and not letting this dull her sparkle!
