ST. GEORGE — This southern Utah representative is set to take the stage to compete in the upcoming Miss Utah USA pageant. And she's poised to showcase not just her beauty but also her commitment to empowering the community through tech education and advocacy.

"I think there's a stigma that comes with pageantry that I feel like even I had, not knowing the point or the benefit of it," contestant Emily Camacho said. "But as I've trained, it's helped me learn a lot about myself."

On Saturday, Camacho will head to Salt Lake City to represent southern Utah as Miss Southern Utah USA in the Miss Utah USA Pageant, which will be held at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center Jeanné Wagner Theatre.
