(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Kids put on their best outfits for this year's Southside Royalty Pageant on Saturday.

The pageant was held at the Evolution United Methodist Church on the southside and featured kids in theme wear.

Judges scored each contestant based on the creativity of their outfit.

Kori Hughes, the woman behind the royalty pageant said her goal was to create something more inclusive for kids to take part in after her daughter who has a mental and physical disability.

"This we created for boys and girls of all kinds," Hughes said. "We wanted to make something boys and girls can be a part of."

This was the fourth year of the pageant.
