The 2021 Little Miss Buford and Sweetheart of Georgia Pageant was held Saturday, Feb. 20, at the Buford High School Performing Arts Center.
The annual fundraiser for the BHS Band of Wolves showcased more than 70 contestants, crowning winners in 14 age divisions and raising more than $12,000 for the needs of the band department.
In addition to the onstage competition, contestants were eligible to participate in optional categories including Photogenic and Interview and could opt in for special “sight” awards such as Prettiest Smile, Prettiest Eyes and Prettiest Dress.
Additionally, contestants could sell ads for the full-color souvenir program book supporting their “Ambassador” fundraising goals. Ambassadors sell at least $220 in ads, with the Junior Supreme and Supreme Ambassadors being the top ad sellers. More than 200 awards were given, according to pageant organizer Myra Sharp.
