Brylinn won third place in the photogenic category.  She also achieved the Miss Spirit award.  What a great kid. 

Her mom Leandra Scott, said,

We first introduced you to the 5-year-old Niagara Falls resident back in May when she was preparing for the Independence Day weekend pageant.With help from the community, Brylinn was able to raise more than $2,000 dollars for contest expenses.

People jumped into help, to the point that Brylinn "even got a custom made cover for her wheelchair decorated like a Mercedes Benz donated by The Foundry in Buffalo.

Lastly, Scott says winning the trophies was great but what meant most to the family was seeing their daughter make friends and leave a lasting impression on everyone she met.

Mom adds that Brylinn’s next step is modeling.

"She wants other kids with special needs to see her daughter and know anything is possible."

Well, Brylinn is already doing some pretty cool role modeling.
