Miss Teen Los Angeles Pageant

The 2010 Miss Teen Pageant just took place in Los Angeles, California and this year NancyAugust.com was honored to be sitting on the judges panel. At first we were a little skeptical as all children are winners in our eyes. Once we gained more information about this particular pageantry, we were delighted to join in and be a part of this momentous event in the contestants young lives. This was a "pageantry with purpose". This pageant was not a beauty pageant rather a inner beauty pageant. The entire goal of this event was to empower and encourage young ladies to succeed by enhancing their self-confidence and self-esteem. When asking many of the contestants why they entered this competition, surprisingly the top two answers we received was "to build my self-confidence" and "to make new friends".

There was no talent or swimsuit competition, nor was the contestants required to meet any height or weight requirements. The judges judged on three main events: Personal Interviews, Casual Wear, and Formal Wear. The entire pageant consisted of four divisions, Junior Pre-Teen (ages 7-9), Pre-Teen division (ages 10-12), Junior Teen (ages 13-15), and Teen (ages 16-19).

Every little angel and beautiful princess looked wonderful and there was not enough ooohhhs and ahhhhs to go around. We were also so happy to see that one of the Junior Pre-Teen contestants was wearing NancyAugust.com's white flower girl dress with bubble skirt item 3319G-WHT. Here are some photos from the pageant!
