Murrieta resident Hannah Schuchhardt is only six years old, but she’s ready to prove to her community that beauty pageants are about more than looking cute and dressing up.

Over the summer Schuchhardt, who attends Rail Ranch Elementary, competed for the title of Miss California Queen and won. In order to wear her tiara and hold the title, she is expected to give back to the community.

Schuchhardt’s time and effort competing in the pageant gave her the opportunity to offer hundreds of bags filled with school supplies valued over $1,000 for teachers and schools in the Murrieta Unified School District.

As Schuchhardt prepared for the pageant this summer, she and her family thought of the many ways she could help others using her title and crown.

On Friday Aug. 15, Schuchhardt presented to Rail Ranch Elementary the school supplies during the morning assembly.

"This is just the beginning of what our little girl will be doing for her state," said Elisha Schuchhardt, Hannah’s mom. "This competition isn’t toddlers and tiaras it is a huge commitment filled with charity and volunteer work."

Hannah is following in her older sister Kali’s footsteps in winning and competing in pageants. She is just like any typical first grader; she runs, plays, jumps and giggles. But when it comes to talking to her about her job as Miss California Queen, Princess Division she is all business.

"I want to be a teacher when I grow up and I want to Advertisement

make a difference in the lives of others," Hannah said. "And it’s really cool and fun to compete."

Hannah Schuchhardts father Michael Schuchhardt is a Master Gunnery Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps (an explosive ordinance disposal technician) stationed at Camp Pendleton.

The gunny, who has more than 20 years of military experience, fully supports his daughters efforts in pageants and is helping her get involved with the Wounded Warrior Foundation to donate books and school supplies to the families.

"When I am able to I help my daughters at the pageants as a logistical coordinator," Michael said. "I also get to escort them on stage during the evening gown segment."

"We will visit Rady’s Children’s Hospital in San Diego soon to bring children books and stuff animals. And in the next few weeks Hannah hopes to start fundraising for Make a Wish America collecting change for the children," Elisha said.

Hannah Schuchhardt will be teaming up with other sister queens to do community services and she will travel across the country representing her state.

"I am so proud of Hannah," said Rail Ranch Elementary Principal Tammy Hunter-Wethers. "I am proud to see the pageant has the children getting involved in giving back to the community at such an early age."

Wethers said the pageant is a perfect avenue for children to contribute to society and teach empathy for others.

Hannah Schuchhardt will be competing again on Thanksgiving weekend at Disneyland for a national title.
