Carleton’s Annual Celebration is Back

Carleton’s Milo Day celebration is back and with it, the Milo Queen contest.

Since 1953, the Milo Queen contest has been a tradition of Milo Day in Nebraska’s Milo Capital, Carleton. The contest allows high school junior and senior young women to participate in an afternoon of interviews, evening gown, fun activities and a community service project. This year, the girls will be making fleece tie blankets to donate to area nursing homes and Blue Valley Community Action. The contestants will be in the Milo Day parade beginning at 6 p.m. in Carleton. Immediately following the parade, they will participate in the on-stage public portion of the competition. This year’s pageant will be held outside the Carleton community building.

Milo Day Queen contestants for the 2014 Milo Day include:

Tiffany Walsh, Miss Alexandria, daughter of Dick and Cheryl Walsh; Brice Ardissono, Miss Bruning, daughter of Chris and Beth Ardissono; Lauren Schmidt, Miss Byron, daughter of Andrew and Ellen Schmidt; Catherine Mick, Miss Carleton, daughter of John and Darlene Mick; Jaycie Hoins, Miss Davenport, daughter of Jeff and Janet Hoins; Emma Baker, Miss Deshler, daughter of Steve and Jill Baker; Rachel Heitmann, Miss Hebron, daughter of Darcy and Anne Heitmann; Kristen Bryan, Miss Hubbell, daughter of Branden Navarro and Tommy Navarro; Natasha O’Neal, Miss Ruskin, daughter of Richard O’Neal and Ginger Ridolfi; Megan Swartzendruber, Miss Shickley, daughter of Mark and Donna Swartzendruber.
