Sammie Libeer, 6, the daughter of Karen Libeer, has been chosen as a State Finalist in the National American Miss Missouri Pageant to be held June 28 at the Holiday Inn Select in Columbia.

Sammie’s sponsors include her parents, Rink Ratz Skate Center, E.W.S., Meyers Funeral Chapel and Brian Smith.

The National American Miss pageants are held for girls ages 4 to 18, and have five different age divisions. Sammie will be participating in the Princess age division, along with other young ladies from Missouri. All activities and competitions are kept age appropriate. Girls under the ages of 12 are not allowed to wear make-up, and there is no swimsuit competition. The program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation.

The winner will receive a $1,000 cash award, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses and air transportation to compete in the National Pageant in California.

Sammie enjoys roller skating, coloring, playing outside and spending time with her family.
