Shelby Ringdahl, Miss Springfield, was crowned Miss Missouri during a ceremony Saturday night in Mexico, Mo.
Ringdahl was last year’s Miss Texas County.
Jeni Dixon, the current Miss Texas County, placed in the top 11 and won a $750 scholarship.
She participated in other phases of competition; lifestyle and fitness, evening wear, talent, onstage question and a private interview. She performed “The Flight of the Bumblebee” on the marimba for her talent at the contest that was held at the Missouri Military Academy.
The next Miss Texas County pageant is Oct. 26 in Houston.
