Georgia Peanut Festival Pageant hopes to move to state level

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Peanut Festival Pageant could become a state level competition again.

2014 Ms. Georgia Peanut Alix Troupe and Teen Ms. Georgia Peanut  Madison Hancock say competing is fun.

Right now, coordinators are in talks with the Miss Georgia Board of Directors.
They would add swimsuit, interviews, and talent competitions. Troupe and Hancock say pageants have taught them a lot.

"It was very nerve wracking to do that with all the other girls competing. But I did my best and it got me this title so I'm very proud of that,” says Madison Hancock, Teen Ms. Georgia Peanut.

"They are so much fun and the scholarship is amazing. This particular pageant offers a 1000 dollar scholarship, which pays for two semesters worth of books and that's amazing. Its so awesome. I've learned so much and I can't wait to continue that journey," says Alix Troupe, Ms. Georgia Peanut

Pageant Chairman Teresa Robison says the process will take about a year.
