Three teens from Fauquier County showcased their talents in the third annual Miss Abilities Pageant Saturday, March 3 in Winchester.
Contestants (pageant Beauties) Camille Goodall of Broad Run, Jenna McCombe of Nokesville, and Isabella “Bella” DeSatorra of Sumerduck participated in the event for the first time.
The pageant was hosted by the nonprofit Miss Abilities Organization, which gives youth with disabilities from Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland the opportunity to build confidence and make a difference in their community.
Jessica Edwards, a mom who was inspired by her oldest daughter’s wish to be the first Miss America with autism, founded the nonprofit in 2015.
Twenty-eight girls received crowns this year, and Miss Virginia Cecili Weber attended the event.
During the performance segment each teen presented a 90-second routine showcasing any talent they wished to share.
Camille participated in the “Miss” category, for women ages 20 to 29.
A graduate of Kettle Run High School, Camille wore a stunning cream-colored evening gown with black embroidered flowers and a black satin sash.

Jenna McCombe, a Kettle Run student who will graduate this spring, participated in the “Teen Miss” category, for young women ages 16 to 19.
