Miss Southern Missouri Katie Farr — who was crowned in Houston — won the People’s Choice award Saturday at the Miss Missouri Pageant in Mexico, Mo.

It is voted on by fans of the organization who cast a vote on its website.

Proceeds from the votes will go to the Miss America Scholarship Foundation.

Farr, of Jefferson City, is the daughter of Bill and Rachel Farr.

Miss Spirit of St. Louis Clare Marie Kuebler of Wildwood was crowned Miss Missouri on Saturday night.  

Last week, teens from throughout the state of Missouri met in Mexico to begin a full week of rehearsals and competition in the Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant. While only one teen received the crown, many received awards and scholarships totaling more than $26,000.

Among the scholarships included a non-finalist award for Miss Texas County’s Outstanding Teen Gianna Westlund of Houston. She is the daughter of Cindy Westlund Bobe and attends Houston High School.

The Miss Missouri Scholarship Organization is one of the largest providers of scholarships to young women in the state. This year, the organization will award $85,000 in scholarships between the Miss and Outstanding Teen programs.
