PRESCOTT – Saturday saw several young ladies crowned as new Nevada County pageant winners, along with seeing a quartet of young people tabbed talent winners. Interestingly, all of the talent winners were siblings competing in different divisions.

Josh and Jacob Christopher won the Junior Duo division, while the junior single solo went to their brother Payton, with Cassady Christopher taking the senior solo category. All three move on to district in Hope and hope for a shot at the state fair in October.

As to the pageants, there weren’t a lot of contestants in most categories, and none vying for Nevada County Fair Queen. However, the win for those who competed was just as sweet.
