One of our FAVORITE photos from last year's state pageant season was this one - featuring Shelby Thompson, Sarah Stokley, Elisabeth Oliphint, Kyndall Covington and Hannah Robinson - also known as, the Top 5 at Miss Tennessee...

Talk about 'capturing a moment'...   That Top 5 was jam-packed with stunning ladies in a super-competitive fight to the finish, but during this moment... They were all filled with child-like joy and incredibly happy to be one step closer to the title of Miss Tennessee. :)

The eventual winner, Shelby Thompson,  did the state of Tennessee proud this year by traveling over 70,000 miles - serving as the Governor's official spokesperson for Character Education in TN.  Additionally, Shelby did a fabulous job promoting her platform: Big Brothers, Big Sisters and was even featured on WBIR Television out of Knoxville, TN in this video here...

The Junkies were super-impressed with the way Shelby has impacted others through Big Brothers Big Sisters - Lovely interview from a lovely titleholder!  We wish Shelby all the best in whatever path she she chooses!

Now - regarding Miss TN 2014, only 1 of the ladies in that Top 5 photo above is back - which means there's room for some fresh faces and for some new names to break into the Top 10 this year!

Sarah Stokley - 1st runner up '13, Prelim SS, Top 10 at Sweetheart
