The evening gowns chosen by the contestants for Miss Connecticut is often a closely guarded secret until the night of preliminaries.

So the preliminary event is the first chance anyone outside of the contestants closest confidantes have seen the gowns.

The preliminary competition was held Friday night at the Mohegan Sun Cabaret.

In the preliminary events, Miss Naugatuck Valley Jonet Nichelle won the talent preliminary award and Miss Windham County Colleen Ward won the health and fitness award.

This is what the contestants wore for evening gown.
