Slytherin Pageant Winner

The month long pageant to find who best represents Slytherin house has come to an end. I would like to thank all that have participated and those that voted. I hope we can do this again next year now that we can fix a few kinks that occured in this years First Slytherin Pageant.

So without further ado I present to you the winners:

In 3rd Place Daphne Marin
In 2nd Place Ariel Kingston

And coming in 1st place, voted by you in HOL is.....


She is the first ever Miss Slytherin. She will have many duties to fulfill like go to the openings of supermarkets, promo pictures with little witches and wizards at Hogsmeade stores, and flying in the annual Yorkshire pudding parade.

If for some reason Miss Sully can not complete her reign or if she is suddenly attacked by a band of hippogriffs let loose by the other contestants, then the runner up (Ariel) will take her place.

Again thank you all for participating and take a look at the nice awards:

The crown is for the winner of the pageant
the silver locket for 2nd place
bronze locket for 3rd place
and the pink bowtie goes to the assistant(s) for the pageant and that goes to Zoki Phanton and Lilly Stargazer.

Thank you again and See you next year!
