Upcoming Jackson pageant highlights contestants with special needs

JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Celebrating the beauty in everyone is the goal of an upcoming beauty pageant in Jackson.

The 4th annual Beautiful Blessings Beauty Pageant is open to contestants with special needs, both male and female, from birth to teens.

It will be held October 24, 2015 at 10 a.m. at Jackson Middle School on West Independence Street.

LaVonda Young started the event with the help of her sister Danielle to help give her daughter, who has Down Syndrome, a chance to shine.

Each contestant will walk the pageant stage as audience members learn more about him or her.

Each contestant will receive an accolade and there will be no overall winner, as every contestant deserves to be honored.

For more information about the pageant and entries, contact Danielle Young at 573-225-8364.
