The winner of Miss Sheppey hopes the skills she has learnt through the pageant will help her fulfil her careers ambitions.
Brooke Buttfield, 16, was chosen as the winner during a selection process at Bonds Sports and Social Club, New Road, Sheerness on Saturday.
Her two princesses were Hannah Stockham, 18, and Jess Bye, 15.
Mia Clark, 12, was selected as Junior Miss Sheppey, with Bethany Isbell, 13, and nine-year-old Melody Jackson making up her court.
The winners will represent the Island at carnivals and fetes across Kent over the next year.
Miss Buttfield has come full circle having previously won Junior Miss Sheppey in 2011.
The teenager later went on to become Junior Miss UK in the same year.
She is now doing a business administration apprenticeship at Swale council’s Economy and Community Services department.
Although she has not made her mind up completely, the St Katherine Road, Halfway, resident is considering going into events management.
She said: “I do want to [be Miss Sheppey] to make new friends as it helps with socialising with other people throughout Kent but the interviews can also help with jobs.”
