The pageant was held Saturday, February 22 at 6 p.m. at the Louisville High School Auditorium. The theme for this year was Pilot Sweet Hearts.
The proceeds from the pageant go to support Pilot Club projects and to promote awareness of Brain Related Disorders by helping those affected through volunteer activities, education, and financial support.
Winners were named in several categories.
