Presented by Mount Washington Valley Promotions, the collaborative fund-raising event was hosted by Theater in the Wood, in Intervale. Each woman was scored in Interview, Runway and Public Speaking by a panel of judges. In addition, each was asked to collect funds for her chosen non-profit, those figures also factoring into the final score.
At the end of the pageantry, Barbara Theriault, representing Jen’s Friends Cancer Foundation, was crowned 2022 Valley Ms. and earned a donation of $500.00 in addition to the funds she raised in her Ca$h Can. Theriault was also the top fund-raiser. Hannah-Jo Weisberg represented the Believe in Books Literacy Foundation, claiming the Runner-up position. The other contestants were Sandra Abbott – representing Bartlett Roundhouse Preservation Society, Holly Bartlett – representing White Mountains Pride, LeeAnna Bushey – representing North Conway Community Center, Rebekah Bushey – representing Robert Frost Public Charter School, Holly Fougere – representing Arts In Motion Theater Company, Brianna Goldblatt – representing MWV Skating Club, Ciara Neidlinger – representing M&D Playhouse, Amelia Severy – representing MWV Arts Association, Alicia Tirey – representing Harvest Hills Animal Shelter, Katelyn Webster – representing Miss MWV Teen Scholarship, and Eileen Whalen – representing Conway Area Humane Society.
Reigning Mount Washington Valley Mr., Clay Groves, served as emcee of the event, with 2020 Mount Washington Valley Ms., Laurie Ramsay, assisted by Miss Mount Washington Valley Teen, Lily Chick, passing the crown to the new queen. Entertainment was provided by the Kennett High School Dance Team, Jay Hall and Madison Walcott. Local businesses donated “swag” items for all of the participants so everyone who participated, and their causes, were winners in the end.

Not only did these ladies represent their chosen organizations well”, she stated, “they truly helped one another before and during the event, making new friends and wonderful connections”.
