March 2 included icy weather and a couple inches of snow, but it also included the crowning of this year’s Miss Liberal, Emily Bayouth.

Bayouth, a sophomore at Seward County Community College, ended up winning $3,400 in scholarship money, sweeping the private interview award and the Quality of Life scholarship. She also tied for the evening wear award with first runner-up Holly Hinkle and will also get a $500 clothing allowance.

Bayouth will travel to Pratt this summer to compete for the 2014 Miss Kansas title.

Holly Hinkle, currently a senior at Liberal High School, ended up with $1,850 in scholarship money, sweeping the talent portion and the swimwear award.

Olivia Robinson, a senior at Kansas Connections Academy, ended up taking the second runner-up title and earned $1,300 in scholarship money, including one of two scholarships from Seward County Community College – the other one going to Jessica Martinez.

The remaining contestants each received a $400 entry award going toward scholarships.

Bayouth, her mother Clareisa Bayouth and Executive Director Lu Haynes will be attending the first weekend seminar in Wichita on Saturday and Sunday at the Tall Grass Country Club called “Countdown to the Crown,” a preparation workshop for all Miss Kansas and Outstanding Teen contestants who will be competing in the state competitions in Pratt this summer.

Other announcements and information will be posted on misskansas.org as it becomes available.
