(JUDAH) - After a 30 minute rain delay, Alivia Mackey claimed her new title as the 2017 Judah Heritage Festival Queen and Lynnette Prince claimed hers as the 2017 Miss Pink Queen and Miss Awareness.

The pageants were held Tuesday evening in the Little Theatre of Bedford. There were nine contestants in the Judah Heritage Festival Queen pageant and three contestants in the Miss Pink Queen pageant. The young ladies completed their theme wear and evening gown portion of the pageants on stage.

"I didn't know what to say! I was speechless. I was absolutely shocked," said Mackey. She is 19 years old from Springville and just graduated high school in May. She is the daughter of Blaine and Bridget Mackey.

"It was very eye opening just how to be confident in who you are and make new friends. I'll definitely take away the friendships... there was not 5 minutes when we were not laughing," Mackey said about her experience participating in pageant.

Taylor Hayes from Springville walks away as 1st Runner Up. She is the daughter of Jeff and Joni Hayes and is a junior this year at BNL.

Callison Blais from Mitchell was named 2nd Runner Up. She has been participating in pageants for 7 years. She is the daughter of Justin and Chasey Blais. This coming school year she will be a sophomore at Mitchell High School.

Jr. Miss Awareness was claimed by Lauren Woods. She is the daughter of Shannon and Georgia Woods, a junior at Mitchell High School. She raised a total of $220 raising awareness and funds for the Lawrence County cancer patients and Phi Beta Psi, who will use the funds to help those dealing with the disease.

Prince raised a total of $306.50 to claim the title of Miss Awareness. "I'm so excited! I'm so grateful, this experience has been one of the best," said Prince.

Jessica Cole was crowned 1st Runner Up to the Miss Pink Queen and Tiffany Burton was crowned 2nd Runner Up.
