Twenty-year-old Siana Hemmings from Scunthorpe was crowned Miss Lincolnshire 2012 on Friday night, securing her place in the Miss England grand final.
Siana said: “I am so thrilled to win the title of Miss Lincolnshire.
“I can’t wait to represent my county at the Miss England final later this year. I just hope I can do Lincolnshire proud and bring home the crown.”
The event, organised by Front Models and held at Tokyo nightclub in Lincoln on May 11, saw Siana take to the catwalk alongside 18 other contestants from across the county and compete for the title of Miss Lincolnshire in three rounds.
Siana, who was captain of Scunthorpe United only a few years ago but has now turned her hand to designing clothing and accessories, impressed the judges with her personality, confidence and composure in the interview round.
Head judge David Douglass from Front Models said, “All the finalists looked fantastic last night and the competition was very fierce.
“All the contestants performed extremely well and are all winners for making it through to the final of Miss Lincolnshire but Siana really stood out and shone in every round.”
Hot on the heels of Siana were runners-up, Jade Clay, a 22 year-old make-up artists from Grimsby and Becky Collins, a 22 year old singer in a girl band from Grimsby.
Both girls have been awarded a place in the semi final of Miss England taking place in Leicester on May 30, where they will battle it out against 55 other contestants for a place in the Miss England final.
The Miss Popularity prize was won by Eleanor Norman, a 17 year old from Alford after she collected more than 1,000 votes.
The Miss Charity prize was won by Bethany Campbell, an 18 year old student from Scunthorpe, after she raised £280 for the beauty with a purpose charity – which will go towards the Autistic Society.
The night was hosted by former Miss England and manager at Front Models, Laura Coleman.
