FOND DU LAC (WITI) — The 2014 Miss Wisconsin USA and Miss Wisconsin Teen USA Pageants took place Sunday, September 15 at the Fond du Lac Performing Arts Center in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.

A capacity crowd filled the auditorium on Sunday evening for the pageant finals, where the panel of judges selected Bishara Dorre of Milwaukee as Miss Wisconsin USA 2014, and Patience Vallier of Lake Mills as Miss Wisconsin Teen USA 2014.

Both titleholders will now advance and compete next year at the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA national pageants.

The competition, which is held annually, consists of three proportional segments: evening gown, swimwear and interview.  Eligible young women must be between the ages of 14 and 26 and be unmarried residents of Wisconsin in order to compete in the pageant.

Bishara and Patience will each receive thousands of dollars in prizes and awards.

Most importantly, they will have the opportunity to compete for the national titles of Miss USA and Miss Teen USA this coming year.

Bishara will compete for the title of Miss USA on the live national telecast of Miss USA next summer, and Patience will compete for the title of Miss Teen USA at the national pageant next year.

In addition, the new Miss USA will go on to represent the United States in the Miss Universe competition, which is televised in over 130 countries worldwide.

The Miss Universe and Miss USA Pageants are a Donald J. Trump and NBC Universal partnership. The Miss Universe Organization also produces the Miss Teen USA Pageant.

Utilizing its nationwide grass roots infrastructure, MUO is committed to increasing HIV/AIDS awareness and increasing awareness of breast and ovarian cancers.

By forging relationships with organizations committed to research and education such as the Latino Commission on AIDS, Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Gilda’s Club, the women who champion these causes during their reign are armed to impact women today.

The titleholders of the Miss Universe Organization personify the combination of beauty and intelligence that defines the 21st Century.
