The search for the next Miss Nevada USA and Miss Nevada Teen USA has begun as the countdown for the 2015 Miss Nevada USA Pageant has officially started.
With the competition taking place on Friday, Nov. 21 through Sunday, Nov. 23, young women from all over the state of Nevada will compete for the crown and title.
The much-anticipated event will take place at the Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Campus. The two new winners will be crowned by the previous titleholders, Miss Nevada USA 2014 Nia Sanchez, who was recently crowned Miss USA 2014, and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2014, Alexa Taylor.
“Since Nia’s Miss USA win, there has been so much new and positive energy surrounding the upcoming pageant and we couldn’t be more excited,” says Shanna Moakler, Executive Director of the Miss Nevada USA Organization. “We cannot wait to start working with our contestants.”
Hosted by Miss USA 2011 Alyssa Campanella and 98.5 KLUC radio host Chet Buchanan, the beautiful contestants will be judged in three areas of competition including interview, swimsuit and evening gown, with the final pageant occurring on the evening of Sunday, Nov. 23. Singer and songwriter Brett Young will return to the Miss Nevada USA and Miss Nevada Teen USA pageant this year, entertaining guests with live performances.
A new sponsor this year to the Miss Nevada USA pageant is Towbin FIAT of Las Vegas. “We are thrilled to have Towbin FIAT as a new sponsor,” says Moakler. “This sponsorship is really going to transform the Miss Nevada USA Organization and take it to a new level.”
Throughout their reign, the newly crowned beauty queens will help give back to the community, working with charities and becoming fashion icons while modeling the latest fashions at red carpet events. Both Miss Nevada USA 2015 and Miss Nevada Teen USA 2015 will win an exciting prize package full of stylish attire, shoes, travel and scholarships, including special packages from sponsors including one year of hair care from celebrity colorist Michael Boychuck and an exclusive wardrobe provided by Jason Kim of Double Zero Fashions.
