Mrs Nevada United States
On March 25, 2012 a new Mrs Nevada United States was crowned in the Crown Theatre at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. Kari Deike won the title of Mrs Nevada United States, which is the premier pageant for married women throughout the 50 States and U.S. Territories. http://www.mrsnevadapageant.com/

Six Delegates were judged on their personality, intelligence and overall beauty. The beautiful women scored high on their personal interviews, swimsuit competition and elegance in the evening gown portion.
Kari Deike as the new Mrs. Nevada United States will go on to Nationals in July to vie for the title of Mrs. United States that will be held in Planet Hollywood, and then on to the World Pageant. Kari is a Librarian at the Desert Oasis High School and she loves to work with teens and encourage them to go out and do volunteer work.
The other delegates were Tanice Smith (Mrs. Las Vegas), Melissa Arias (Mrs. Clark County) Byrnne Sifuentes (Mrs. Tropicana) Kristy Hummon (Mrs. Summerlin) Tracy Taylor (Mrs. North Las Vegas)

Deborah Ashton-Cooke, Mrs. Nevada United States 2011 took her final walk before handing over the crown to Kari Deike. Deborah shared that her year reign went beyond her expectations and grateful to serve the states charities.
Jen Coop is the State Director of the Mrs. Nevada United States and her goal was to have these women share their commitment and passion for their charities and causes and to showcase their beauty. Jen surely accomplished that goal and the friendships she made will last a lifetime. Working closely with Jen was the host of the event, Joey Gallon, who was quiet charming and a perfect host.

There were a lot of crowns and sashes from other Pageant holders and one of my favorites was Amanda Kouretas, the former Mrs. Nevada-America 2011 and the present Mrs. Nevada-America 2012. Amanda represents the beauty, charm and elegance of a beauty queen.
Kari Deike’s daughter Kami has won the title of Miss Nevada Junior Teen United States and she will go to Washington D.C. in July for Nationals. Her charity work is with the Cancer Society. It is thrilling to see mother and daughter involved and working together and each sharing their very special titles, crowns and sashes.
