Though she didn’t finish as the winner or a semi-finalist in the Miss Wisconsin pageant, Miss Kenosha Lily Karnes still walked away being named Miss Congeniality.
Miss Congeniality is an award voted upon by the contestants and is given to the contestant they believe best embodies the spirit of the competition and has a great attitude and mindset.
Means a lot
Earning this honor meant a lot to Karnes, especially after all of the time she spent with her fellow competitors.
“It’s amazing that after spending a week with each other, (the other competitors) voted for me,” Karnes said. “When I got there, I opened myself up to the other girls, and I was myself. I think that made others comfortable to be themselves too.”
Being herself was something that Karnes was no stranger to during her run through the pageant circuit. Karnes said the most important part of her doing the pageants was the impact she made talking about mental health.
“A lot of people have reached out to me to talk about their situation,” Karnes said.
