On June 18th, Arianna Quan was crowned Miss Michigan 2016. She impressed the audience with a beautiful classical piano performance in the talent portion of the competition and in the evening gown competition she was poised and graceful in her black form-fitting, jeweled and feather-accented evening gown.
Arianna competed as Miss Wayne County against 32 other beautiful ladies representing various local competitions. Her personal platform is, “Being American: Immigration & Citizenship Education.” Representing our great state of Michigan, Arianna will make appearances and promote her platform around the state and to the nation during her reign.

On June 15th, Kendra Lodewyk was crowned Miss Michigan’s Outstanding Teen 2016. Her beautiful voice resounded in the Frauenthal Theatre as she sang Franz Schubert’s “Ave Maria” in the talent portion of the competition. Kendra’s spunky fitness routine showed off her excellent shape, condition, and personality in her sportswear topped off with a pink visor.
Kendra competed as Miss Auburn/Midland’s Outstanding Teen against 22 other young ladies representing various local pageants during the two nights of competition. She will compete in the national Miss America’s Outstanding Teen competition August 2-6 in Orlando Florida.
