A poised and polished Jacque Guyette put it all together to capture the Miss Auburn crown Saturday night.

The 22-yearr-old Auburn woman topped 16 other contestants to capture the title, earning more than $7,600 in gifts, awards and scholarships following two nights of competition at the Auburn Performing Arts Center.

“I’m overwhelmed, ecstatic,” Guyette said moments after receiving the tiara, flowers and a flood of hugs and congratulations from contestants, family and friends. “I’m very surprised. I am thrilled.”

Guyette automatically qualifies for the Miss Washington Pageant later this year. The Miss Auburn program, sponsored by the Auburn Noon Lions Club, is an official preliminary to the Miss Washington and Miss America scholarship pageants.

Guyette, an Auburn Riverside High School graduate, is a senior studying dance and public health at the University of Washington. She competed on the platform, Heart Health and Women’s Cardiac Research.

An honors student, Guyette teaches ballroom dance professionally at the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Federal Way. For her talent segment, Guyette performed a beautiful lyrical jazz dance to James Morrison’s “You Make It Real.”

Guyette is the daughter of Cecelia Guyette. Auburn Chevrolet sponsored her, and her Little Sister was Haley Walker.

De’Djuana Simpson was first runner-up, Jennifer Matson second runner-up, Morgan Warren third-runner-up and Alyssa Mesina fourth runner-up.

Vivian Dao, 13, a student at Olympic Middle School, won Miss Auburn’s Outstanding Teen crown, topping nine other contestants.

Evelyn Crisostomo was first runner-up and Sylvia Jones second runner-up.

The Reporter will have more details and photos of the pageant this week.
