Lily pads and frogs greeted the nine young ladies and one young man as they walked onto the stage. Dare Officer Dan Rittenhouse was the MC for the evening and interviewed each of the contestants. Describing their costumes, talking about their pets or shyly staring brought chuckles from parents and friends. Asked if her rabbit Stella could talk what would she say, Addyson Lange replied “Hello”. Jocylyn Stegner knew the most famous person had to be Mickey Mouse.
Contestants sitting on their lily pads and content with a bag of goodies watched as Jarod Ragan was crowned Little Mr Mum and Jocelyn Stegner Little Miss Mum.
