Miss Czech/Slovak US Queen at One World Day in Cleveland

Miss Michaela Marenka Steager is the 2016/17 Miss Czech/Slovak US Queen.  She lives in Nebraska and came to the 71st annual One World Day in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.  This was Michaela and her parent’s first trip to Ohio.

Laurel Tombazzi introduced Michaela and spoke about the competition which now includes Carpatho Rusyn and well as Czech and Slovak heritage.

Michaela showed her kroj (traditional costume) which includes a favorite tie from her late grandfather.
