Miss Antioch for 2016 Melissa Nettgen, 20, places the royal crown upon the head of Jessica Lamberty, 17, who was selected to be Miss Antioch for 2017, as 2016 Junior Miss Antioch Noelle Roskopf, 16, looks on during the annual pageant held at the Antioch Community High School, 1133 Main St., on Saturday, May 20.

Lamberty, a talented singer and performer in many local events, is no stranger to pageant victories. She was selected Junior Miss Antioch in 2012.

Despite giving up her Antioch crown, Nettgen continues down her royal road as Miss Lake County for 2017, the first Antioch resident to be awarded that title.

Also chosen during the proceedings were the new Junior Miss Antioch, Adalia Tate, 15, and Little Miss Antioch for 2017, Adriana Thornton, 8.

The pageant was held one month earlier than normal this year as auditorium construction is scheduled to take place at the school in June.

The event was sponsored by the Parks and Recreation Department and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For more information about future events, visit the Parks and Recreation website at
