Press Photo Day
Thursday morning begins promptly at 9:00am with Press Photo Day poolside amongst the tropical surrounding at The Westin Diplomat. The international paparazzi and the local press converge in anticipation of taking the perfect picture with our models. The day started out beautifully as our delegates put the sunshine into this press day. Led by Miss Florida USA 2010 Megan Clementi the perfect day offered no clouds and lots of sun to show off our delegates at their best.
Preliminary Interview Competition
The competition began Thursday as for the first time the judges and contestants meet. The first impression was made during the Preliminary Interview Competition that began at 3:30pm and last through the evening. For the fifth year the competition consisted of panel style judging featuring our judges and the sixty one delegates. We are pleased to report the girls and judges were laughing up a storm, it was so much fun!
Westin Diplomat Celebratory Dinner
To thank all of our delegates for their efforts both as titleholders and in preparations for the state competition The Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa has a special dinner. The restaurant services and catering at our host hotel is legendary and they put their best foot forward. Even with the beef wellington, scrumptious whitefish and chicken this writer’s personal favorite was the strawberry shortcake. It was truly a great ending to The Miss Florida USA Dinning Series as the ladies got to enjoy the best of culinary delights!
