Isabella Marie Perrilloux, 7, has been chosen as a State Finalist in the National American Miss Louisiana Pageant to be held May 30-June 1 at the Crown Plaza in Baton Rouge. The National American Miss pageants are held for girls ages 4-18, and have five different age divisions. Perrilloux will be participating in the 4-6 age division, along with other young ladies from across the state of Louisiana.

The winner of the Pageant will receive a $1,000 cash award, the official crown and banner, a bouquet of roses, and air transportation to compete in the National Pageant in California where she will receive an exciting complimentary Tour of Hollywood and two VIP tickets to Disneyland®.

The National American Miss Pageants are dedicated to celebrating America's future leaders and equipping them with life-long skills. Each year the pageant nationally awards more than 1.5 million dollars in cash, scholarships and other prizes, which includes a New Ford Mustang Convertible!

The National American Miss Pageants are unlike any other. All activities and competitions are kept age appropriate. Girls under the age of 12 are not allowed to wear make-up, and there is no swimsuit competition. The Pageant program is based on inner-beauty, as well as poise and presentation, and offers an "All-American spirit of fun for family and friends." Emphasis is put on the importance of developing self confidence, learning good sportsmanship, as well as setting and achieving personal goals. The Pageant recognizes the accomplishments of each girl while encouraging her to set goals for her future.
