HAMPTON — A 17-year-old Massachusetts girl was named Miss Hampton Beach 2015, the youngest of the nine contestants for the title.
The Portsmouth Herald reports Victoria Soucy was Junior Miss Hampton Beach in 2011. The Merrimac resident became the 69th Miss Hampton Beach winner Sunday on her second try.
Soucy says she was pleasantly surprised to be given the crown.
Pageant Director Stephanie Lussier says the goal of the competition is to find the best representative of Hampton Beach.
Soucy said she feels Miss Hampton Beach should be a presence in the community to let people know how great Hampton Beach is.
Lussier, a former Miss Hampton Beach, says the pageant is looking for the best spokesperson for the Seacoast.
