The Miss Connecticut Scholarship Pageant gala is typically the kick off for the final countdown to the Miss Connecticut and Miss Connecticut’s Outstanding Teen pageants (which began Thursday in New London with semifinals and continues through Saturday night for the final crowning). At this year’s gala at the Aqua Turf in Plantsville, young women pulled out their stylish finery and had fun before the hard work really began this week.
