Rancho Santa Fe student is a National Finalist in the Princess Program

Lana Lakdawala, an 8- year-old in third grade student at R. Roger Rowe Elementary School in Rancho Santa Fe, was selected as one of the top 15 finalists in a national contest open to girls age 12 and under. The “Precious Princess” contest is sponsored by Fourpoints Magazine, which is associated with the Miss America program. The “four points” of the Miss America crown refers to “Scholarship, Success, Style and Service.”

The Precious Princess contest recognizes girls with a variety of accomplishments, talents and community service. Most of the finalists have been involved in their local or state Princess Program, which is not a competitive beauty pageant, but a mentoring program for young girls.

Lana has been involved in the program for three years.

Voting for the top 15 national finalists is open to the public and is available online now through Sunday, April 15.
