The annual Canadohta Lake Pageant was held on Sunday, July 24, 2011, at – where else? – Canadohta Lake, near the Frog Pond and the waterslide in the Frog Pond Pavillion. Kicking off at 2:00 pm, even though the judging started much earlier for the four categories of runners at around 10:00 am, the four categories of girls began the pageantry.
2011 Little Miss Canadohta
First to appear was the youngest category of girls, the Little Miss Canadohta Lake class, including girls from ages 6-8. After each girl was introduced and given a brief interview, there was, as there is with all pageants, a ‘slight’ intermission for the judges to tally up their votes during whichn Isabellah Heddrick, the 2010 Little Miss Canadohta, gave her farewell speech. She thanked many people, including her parents, God, and her fellow 2010 Canadohta Royalty. The winners were announced, and the new Little Miss Canadohta was crowned by 2010 Little Miss Canadohta Isabellah Heddrick.

2011 Junior Miss Canadohta
The next class of young ladies, ages 9-12, to take the stage in their beautiful dresses and pretty hair-dos was the Junior Misses. Of course, this part of the pageant followed a similar routine: introductions, interviews, intermission, farewell speech by 2010 Junior Miss Canadohta Hannah Heddrick (sister of Isabellah) that thanked many of the same people that Isabellah did, judging, announce the winners, and crown the new Junior Miss Canadohta.
The 2011 Junior Miss Canadohta title was given to Audrianna Carmona.
2011 Teen Miss Canadohta
The Teen Miss Canadohta included girls from ages 13-15, and as with every level of the pageant, the pageant-goers watched a similar set-up. Teen Miss Canadohta Shelby Stockton gave a touching farewell speech during which she required the help of her sistert to pass out the flowers she had brought for those that she thanked: her fellow Royalty, her mother, her father, sister, C.J. Tisi the pageant director, Royalty from Corry whom she happened to be very good friends with, the director of CLABA who makes the pageant possible, and many, many more.

2011 Miss Canadohta
And finally the eldest girls, ages 16-19, took the stage, looking elegant in their formal dresses. They were introduced and interviewed, and 2010 Miss Canadohta Kelly Corradi gave her farewell speech, the beginnings of tears in her eyes. She stressed how special her year was and how whomever took the title next would have the best year, wished all of the competing girls the best of luck, and thanked everyone she could think of to thank. The Misses were welcomed back up on stage and the winners were announced. 2010 Miss Canadohta Kelly Corradi crowned her successor.
