Sunday afternoon, April 11th, Tricia Schimpf who was competing in the Miss Maine Pageant representing Hancock County as Miss Hancock County won the pageant in Portland and became Miss Maine for America Strong!

Monday morning we were able to sit down over the computer with Tricia and find out about the pageant experience. What it was like to keep hearing her name being called as she won the Fitness/Swimsuit competition, the Evening Gown Competition,  Most Photogenic and Inspirational Women! Plus she told us how it was to wake up this morning and see the tiara/crown on her bedside table!

Tricia is looking forward to represent not only Hancock County but the entire State in appearances, with her first scheduled in Southern Maine this weekend! If you are an organization or club and want to talk with her about appearing at one of your events you can reach out to her via Facebook.
