Smiles were all around and the Christmas spirit was in the air on Saturday, December 6, for the 2nd annual Santa's Lil Angels Beauty Pageant sponsored by the Butler County Foster Care Association.  The event was held at Butler County High School  and featured "Christmas Attire Only."  

Participants competed in several different age groups.  For girls, the age divisions were 0-6 months, 7-12 months, 13 months-2 years, 3-4 years, 5-7 years, and 8-12 years.  For boys, the age groups were0-6 months, 7-12 months, 13 months-2 years.  Awards were given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age group, although one category was extended to 4th place.  1st place winners received a crown/scepter, a sash and large trophy.  2nd and below received a smaller trophy.   

Christina Brown, president of the Butler County Foster Care Association, was the pageant coordinator.  

Wanda Nevins was emcee for the pageant and she spoke about the need for more foster care families in Butler County.  

"Butler County is in dire need of foster families.  New classes start January 15 in Bowling Green and it is a 10-week course," said Nevins.  "More families in Butler County means less disruption for children and families.

According to Nevins, all money from the pageant goes to the Butler County Foster Care Association to help families in Butler County.
