LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Dozens of the cutest little girls strutted their stuff for a Little Miss Lufkin Pageant.
More than 40 contestants from across Angelina County competed for coveted crowns in each age division.

Every contestant went home with a trophy. Hensley said this competition helps build confidence and self-esteem.
