Maxwell teen crowned 2017 Miss Colusa County

Hannah Azevedo sank to her knees when she heard her name called over the grandstands’ loudspeaker opening day of the Colusa County Fair.

The Maxwell teen was crowned Miss Colusa County on Thursday and will serve as the area’s representative for an entire year.

“I was so excited that I didn’t even believe it,” Azevedo said later. “I thought I was dreaming.”

Azevedo, 17, is the daughter of Jeremy and Cheri Azevedo, of Maxwell. She will be a senior next year at Maxwell High School.

For the win, Azevedo earned a $1,000 scholarship when she heads off to the University of Washington in 2018 to pusue a degree in the medical field.

Azevedo’s reign began immediately, and she was seen at numerous events the remaining days of the Colusa County fair, including the parade, senior citizen picnic, and Mr. Cinderfella pageant on Friday, the livestock auction, Monster Trucks, Destruction Derby, and numerous Kids’ World contests and events.

Miss Colusa County for decades has been an icon and role model to hundreds of young girls who dream of wearing the tiara, and Azevedo, 17, was not unaffected by the attention.

“Little kids come up to me and hug me all the time,” she said. “I really enjoy it. I want to be their mentor.”

Azevedo was chosen by a panel of judges among a field of five Colusa County teenagers.

Azevedo was stunning in a two-toned, empire-style forest green grown, and captured the title for her visual poise, personality, stage presence, community involvement, commitment to the pageant, and her on-stage speech on the pros and cons of social media.

Ivet Madrigal was selected first runner-up and will fill in for Azevedo when necessary.

Madrigal, 16, is the daughter of Salvador and Martha Madrigal of Colusa. She will be a senior next year at Colusa High School.

Madrigal earned a $500 scholarship for her win.

The pageant contestants selected Jessica Guzman as 2017’s Miss Congeniality.

Guzman is the daughter of Jeremy Guzman and Trena Andreotti of Colusa. She will be a senior next year Colusa High School.

Khloey Wayman, 17, of Arbuckle, and Morgan Cotter, 17, of Colusa, also participated in the Miss Colusa County Pageant.

All will share in a pool of scholarship money donated to the Chet Shifflett Scholarship Foundation.
