A pair of Door County young women will be in Oshkosh this week competing for a crown and scholarships as the annual Miss Wisconsin Pageant week gets underway. Miss Door County Pageant Executive Director Shirley Ehlers says the last several months have been busy making sure wardrobes are set, talent presentations are rehearsed and getting the girls ready for what’s next.
Miss Door County Susan Fochs is one of 26 contestants for Miss Wisconsin with the winner crowned Saturday night. Preliminaries are held this week in talent, evening wear, lifestyle and fitness in a swimsuit and an on-stage question. The top 11 will advance to Saturday’s finals. In addition, Emma Jeanquart is competing for the crown of Miss Wisconsin Outstanding Teen on Friday night in Oshkosh.
