Nikki Smith of Owensboro has a big 2017 planned.  In July, she's headed to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to compete in a national pageant.  And her strong finish at Little Miss Kentucky helped her book a spot.

Nikki is 6-years-old and recently landed a Top 5 finish at the Little Miss Kentucky pageant in Lexington. Because of her finish there, she earned the chance to vie for the crown at Nationals next July!  Good luck, Nikki!
