6 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE - Thursday, June 2, 2005 L~ Crum Takes Pageant Title Noah Michael Crum What do you do when your little boy wins more beauty pageants than your little girl? Marie Creamer faced that ques- tion when her grandson, three, asked to be in a pageant along- side his female cousin, eight, in a local parade. "He was so jealous, but they won't let boys in the pageant," Creamer explained. She and her daughter Jessica searched for a pageant little Noah Micah Crum could compete in, and fi- nally found one: New Star Dis- covery. The company holds region- al, state, and national com- petitions for newborn to six- year-old boys and girls, giving the winners not only cash priz- es, but opportunities to star in product commercials with other companies. Winners have been in commercials for every prod- uct from McDonald's to John- son & Johnson. Noah was cute enough to win several of the awards at the re- gional competition at the Apple Blossom Mall in Winchester, including Best Smile, Best Per- sonality, and Best Snapshot among boys and girls three to six years of age. Most impres- sively, though, he won second place in the overall competition for three- to four-year-old boys. "He's so outgoing, and he's not scared of anything well, spiders, but that's it. I mean, he is EVERYWHERE. He doesn't meet a stranger!" grandmother Marie Creamer said. Placing in the regional compe- tition meant that Noah was giv- en a chance to go to state compe- titions in Pennsylvania. Here, he did even better than at the regional competition. Noah won Best Snapshot, second place in Best Product Shot and Best Product Wear, and fourth place in Best Smile and Best Person- ahty among girls and boys age three to six. Among boys age three to four, however, he won first place overall, including a crown and sceptre, a $250 sav- ings bond, and a chance to go to the national competition. "I had two girls, I didn't have any boys, so he's the little boy I always wanted," Marie said. She said she and Jessica told Noah all the way. to the state competition that this would be the last pageant. "It's so expensive, it keeps adding up and up!" Marie said. After he won first place, though, neither woman had the heart to tell him he couldn't go to the na- tional competition. Noah has to have advertising sponsors, plus money for costumes and gas to get to the competition in Chica- go on August 5, 6, and 7. "We're trying to get him there I wouldn't take a mil- lion dollars for either [him or her granddaughter]," Marie said.
