SULLIVAN COUNTY, NY — The Sullivan County Pageant is more than a beauty pageant. This pageant is for women who live, work, or go to school in Sullivan County. They participate in a private interview, an opening number dance routine, a themed fun fashion show, evening gown and onstage questions. Seven new titleholders are crowned every year in different age groups. All contestants are invited to go out and make a difference in the county. The girls of the pageant continue after pageant day; they do community service, volunteer at charity events and functions, attend holiday parades and events, and spend their year making a difference.

Every year the pageant picks a charity to donate portions of the proceeds to. This year the titleholders chose The Allyson Whitney Foundation.
