The first annual Backyard Barbie Pageant took place this weekend and was graciously hosted by Dwayne and Melissa Cottrell. The pageant was held at the Community Building in Big Otter, West Virginia on March 1, 2014. The pageant was based on the camouflaged theme with a little class. The turn out to the pageant was a sight to see as the design and ideas of the outfits of all the children were a beautiful combination of color and spirit. The Ultimate Grand Supreme was awarded to Jaylynn Drain. Jaylynn Nicole Drain is the 2 year old daughter of Derick and Jackie Drain of Greenwood, West Virginia. Jaylynn also was awarded for Divisional Best Dressed, Divisional Personality, Overall Best Dressed, Overall Best Personality and Overall Highest Scores. Congratulations to all the winners of this year’s pageant.
