Hannah_Martin_KY_Jr_Preteen_Governor_BrashearAfter five years of hard work and dedication, I was overwhelmed with emotion to be crowned your 2013 National American Miss Kentucky Junior Preteen Queen. It has been an incredible year with many wonderful experiences. I was truly honored to represent my state for National American Miss.
I had the opportunity to meet several community and state leaders. Touring the state capital with my sister queens and meeting Governor Brashear was a great experience.
I loved supporting my community at festivals, parades and fundraising events. I was excited to raise over $1,000 for breast cancer awareness with my NAM bake sale. I also collected books and helped comfort children at the Volunteers of America emergency shelter.
The national pageant in California was amazing. I had so much fun with the contestants and their families at Disneyland. I think my parents had fun too! Seeing the stars on the Hollywood walk of fame and shopping in Coconut Grove was a blast!
I was honored to place second runner up in casual wear modeling and first runner up as the most promising model at nationals.
I made so many new friends this year. Olivia, Miss Indiana, and Maddie, Miss Kansas, you will be my life-long friends. To my sister queens, Aaniyah, Brooke, and Savannah, I am so blessed to have shared this journey with you and you will always have a place in my heart.
A very special thanks to my mom and dad for supporting my dream. You are always encouraging me to do my best and never give up. Thanks to my friend, Gracie, who is more like a big sister. You are always there and even made the trip to California to cheer me on.
Thanks to Matt Leverton for being a wonderful state director and role model for so many young girls. I will remember this year forever.
To my successor, embrace this year and enjoy every moment.
Until next time, I am your 2013 National American Miss Junior Preteen Queen Hannah Martin.

NAM Royalty 2013 Miss KY Princess Queen Aaniyah!Hi everyone!
My name is Aaniyah Makay Burnett and I am your 2013 Miss Kentucky Princess Queen! Being crowned Miss Kentucky Princess was a dream come true for me. Just like some of you, it was my very first pageant too! Since receiving that amazing honor, I have learned so much like, being confident in who I am, getting to meet some amazing people, and giving back to my community. I have been blessed to meet the Governor of Kentucky, Steve Beshear and Senator Mitch McConnell. I’ve made friendships with other girls from all over the country at NAM and met my wonderful new friend Hannah Martin, my sister queen! Throughout the year I also visited other NAM pageants as royalty, flew for the first time to Anaheim, California for Nationals, had a blast at Disneyland with my mom, and even placed Top 10 at Nationals!
This May, I will be crowning the 2014 NAM Princess Queen and I look forward to a weekend of NAM fun! Even though my reign is coming to an end I will continue to volunteer and use the tools National American Miss has taught me. This is just the beginning for me and you will see me again!
I would like to say Thank you to National American Miss, Matt Leverton, and all the staff for this amazing experience. And Good luck to all the new princesses that are going to be competing this year..

Yours Truly,
“2013 National American Miss Kentucky Princess”
Aaniyah Makay Burnett

Hannah Martin2Hannah Martin, Kentucky Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, participated in the Arthritis Walk. The event was help in Louisville, KY at the Louisville Slugger Field. This event was used to raise money to support Arthritis research. The non-competitive 5K walk (3.1 miles), with a one-mile option, is expected to raise $62,000 to support local Arthritis Foundation programs, services and research that hopefully will lead to a cure. More than one million people of all ages in Kentucky have been diagnosed with arthritis, that’s 32 percent of the state’s adults. Kentucky ranks second in the country for the highest incidence of arthritis in adults. And nearly 4,000 children in the state have been diagnosed with arthritis. Fibromyalgia affects about five million Americans and is a condition associated with widespread chronic pain, fatigue, memory problems and mood changes. Rheumatoid arthritis, a systemic autoimmune disease, affects 1.5 million Americans. Women are two to three times more likely to get RA than men. RA can affect more than joints. The heart, lungs, eyes, blood vessels, nervous system and more can be involved. Juvenile arthritis affects nearly 300,000 children, more than the number of children affected with juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis combined. The Arthritis Foundation (www.arthritis.org) is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of arthritis, which strikes one in every five adults and 300,000 children, and is the nation’s leading cause of disability. To conquer this painful, debilitating disease, we support education, research, advocacy and other vital programs and services.
