Lexie, 6, and Leah, 7, Smith both won titles in their age groups for Santa Rosa County and then won the state pageant. They both finished first runner-up in the national pageant. Although they have won these and numerous other titles, they’re especially proud of their Florida Future Little Miss United States Agriculture and Florida Miss United States Agriculture, respectively.

Their father is a farmer and their grandfather, Lewie Joe Smith, is a board member of Jay Peanut Farmers Co-op. Their grandmother, Lisa Lane, is the bookkeeper at Jay.

"It’s a wonderful pageant system that helps to promotes agriculture," Lisa said.
