Miss Maine, Julia Furtado was recently honored in Birmingham, Alabama for receiving the Duke of Edinburgh Award at the Miss America pageant. The award was recognition for her work in the areas of a special talent, physical fitness, community service and an adventurous journey (environment and teamwork). Several other Miss America contestants also attended and were also honored in different levels of participation.
A high tea garden party was held for those receiving awards. In attendance was His Royal Highness Prince Edward, the Governor and Mayor of Alabama and other dignitaries and donors to the Duke of Edinburgh award. Miss Maine performed an operatic piece “O Mio Babbino Caro” by Giacomo Puccini.
Queen of Hats designed Miss Maine’s hat for the Gala. We are proud of Julia Furtado for her accomplishments and the dignified manner in which she represents the Miss Maine organization and the State of Maine.
