Miss Gem City Celese Niemann, who is also vying for the Miss Illinois title, took part in the talent and evening gown competitions Wednesday night.

A second preliminary round of competition will take place Thursday night. The 10 finalists will be announced Saturday, with the eventual winner selected that night.

Twenty-five women from across the state are competing for the Miss Illinois title. The winner will advance to the Miss America pageant in January in Las Vegas.
