During the July 4 weekend, several Far Rockaway residents competed in the Miss American Coed Pageant. Tanisha Morris placed third runner-up in the overall competition and Samantha Williams placed first runner-up in Sportswear. It was both girl’s first time competing.
Three other Far Rockaway girls, Emerald Young, Trisha Williams and Victoria Harding, also competed. Young was crowned the 2005 Miss New York American Princess, Williams was named Miss New York American Teen and Harding was named Miss New York American Coed. All three young ladies will represent the state of New York in November during the National Pageant, held annually at the Walt Disney World Hilton in Florida.
