What happens to a pageant girl who 'ages out' of Miss America or Miss USA? Jillian Dansko, the new Beauties of America's 20s, says they continue to be pageant girls and move on to other pageants.
Jillian competed in the Miss Ohio America system for four years with great success. She placed in the semifinals in 2004 as Miss Buckeye State and 2008 as Miss Central Ohio. In 2006 and 2007, she received non-finalists honors. She has been a dancer for 21 years and has a platform focused on working for inclusion for the disabled in all facets of life. In 2009, she became ineligible for the Miss Ohio system and had to turn to other avenues to continue her pageant dreams.
