Miss Camellia City Pageant

Brittney Guidry

September 19th, 2009

Slidell Little Theatre * Slidell, Louisiana
Directors Message Shelly Winters Black

I would like to thank everyone that have contributed to the success of the Miss Camellia
City Pageant. As we celebrate the 1st year, I look to the future with great hope and ex-
citement. Pageantry is a positive and rewarding hobby that can lead to great things! It
helps the contestant develop their individuality at the same time, learn the secretes to
winning the crown. As a former contestant, the skills that I have learned through the art
of competition has been a tremendous influence for
my career as a pageant director. Titles that I have
won over the years were Mrs. Gretna 1993, Mrs.
Kenner 1994, Mrs. Jefferson Parish 1995, Mrs. Or-
leans Parish 1996, The journey to the CROWN has
been filled with many positive points and the friend-
ships have been the most rewarding thing that I take
away from the field of Pageantry.

My staff is the best in the state and have been with

me since the beginning. Peggy Labit, my auditor and
assistant , My sound people Glitter N Gold, Greg
Livaudais Photography , Thank you Sammy Steele,
Chantel & Heather Autin for their continued support.
A special THANK YOU to Brian Apple white & Chris
Cerullo for their professionalism for the past Ten
years. To the staff of the Slidell Little Theatre, thank
you for allowing me to host The Miss Camellia City
Pageant at your beautiful Theatre.

In 1992 I began my Journey To The Crown as a con-

testant in the Mrs. Louisiana America Pageant and met the woman that became my men-
tor and spiritual inspiration. Mary West, was the reigning Mrs. La and was giving up her
title. She became the state director for both Miss New Orleans and Mrs. La America Pag-
eants. Our friendship continues to strengthen and has blessed my life in so many ways!

A Huge THANK YOU to this year’s distinguished panel of judges for both the day &
night events and to this year’s sponsors,

Thank you to my assistant’s Christiania Black & Tracy Lynn Dillon.

In closing, I would like to say thanks to my Husband Sean that has stood by me and
supports all my endeavors and allows me to DREAM! I love you and thanks for being my
best friend.
To My son, Robert, You continue to amaze me with your genuine heart and I am so
blessed to be your mom. Thanks for sharing these special moments with me.

To the Contestants and parents of the children contestants, Thanks a million for allow-
ing these folks the opportunity to peruse the CROWN from the Miss Camellia City Run-

Yours In Pageantry,

"How to Start and Direct Your Own Pageant"
An industry veteran breaks from the pack and reveals for the first time the secrets of
Directing Pageants!

Are you a pageant mom who loves the see her kids radiate with joy under the spotlight
and wants to spread the joy to other parents and relatives?

Maybe you are a former contestant who misses the thrill and glamour from walking the
run way.

Or are you just some one who is driven to create events that enrich the lives of others?

No Matter Who You are You can Live Your Dreams

if Directing Pageants is in Your Heart..

Hi I'm Shelly Winters Black,

Many people from different walks of life can catch the Pageant Directing Bug. I caught it many years
ago as a contestant and winner of many titles in my home state of Louisiana.
If you are driven to participate in the pageantry field then I know how you feel.
The building excitement as the contestant prepares for the show.
The rush as she steps on the stage knowing the first impression is the ONLY Impression.
Then the wave of exhilaration hits you like the heat from an open oven on Thanksgiving Day.
You could cut the LOVE in the room with a butter knife.

Launching a career as a Director of Beauty Pageants gives you the power and satisfaction to generate
this kind of energy like no other pursuit.
If this is your dream then you need to purchase The Complete Director’s Kit…
