Due to an overwhelming demand, another 35 photos were added on Tuesday, May 23! There are now 78 photos! The village of Antioch held its annual Miss Antioch Pageant at the Antioch Community High School, 1133 Main St., on Saturday, May 20.

Royalty for the upcoming year are the new Miss Antioch, Jessica Lamberty, 17, the new Junior Miss Antioch, Adalia Tate, 15, and the new Little Miss Antioch, Adriana Thornton, 8. The girls will be representing the village at many events throughout Lake County.

Jessica, a talented singer and performer in many local events, is no stranger to pageant victories. She was selected Junior Miss Antioch in 2012.

Each girl received the pageant sash and crown from the outgoing 2016 queens, Miss Antioch Melissa Nettgen, 20, Junior Miss Antioch Noelle Roskopf, 16, and Little Miss Antioch Scarlett Victor, 10. Melissa will continue walking down the royal trail, however, as earlier this year she was voted Miss Lake County for 2017, the first Antioch resident to be awarded that title.

The pageant was held one month earlier than normal this year as auditorium construction is scheduled to take place at the school in June.

The event was sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
