WORCESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — After a year off because of the pandemic, the Miss Massachusetts pageant is on again, this weekend, in Worcester.
Since the pageant was cancelled last summer, Lyndsay Littlefield of Taunton has had the unique privilege of being Miss Massachusetts for two years.
However, Littlefield said she'll happily relinquish the crown this weekend.
"Representing Massachusetts as the title holder has been absolutely incredible and to be able to do it twice is just a remarkable opportunity that I could not pass up," said Littlefield.
Her successor will come from a field of 23 young women from around the state. The winner receives a $12,000 scholarship and will go on to represent the Commonwealth in the 100th Miss America Pageant.
"We are a scholarship organization and I'm just really proud to have had the opportunity to travel the state and promote the organization that has helped me graduate debt free," said Littlefield.
She graduated from Bridgewater State University. Preliminaries are Friday evening at the Hanover theater in Worcester and the finals are Saturday.
