Dozens of contestants are preparing for the 76th annual Miss South Carolina and Miss SC Teen pageants.
Contestants met today to practice their routines and perfect their stage walks.
More than 100 girls will be competing for titles in the week long event.
We caught up with the reigning Miss South Carolina—Ali Rogers from Columbia.
“I know they're nervous! There's going to be a lot of anxiety, a lot of sweaty palms and shaky hands… but they're all excited and it's a surreal moment.”
The contestants will be competing for a $25,000 scholarship. The pageant runs every night this week, beginning Tuesday, July 9th.
