Its incredible how fast time flies when you’re having fun. During my reign I was able to promote my platform of volunteering by spending my free time at the food bank, local homeless shelters, parades and participating in the American cancer society relay for life. I had the opportunity to meet so many people from different cultures and age groups around the country.
At the national pageant I got to know a lot of great girls and we had a blast at Disneyland. I am proud to have had the pleasure of upholding the traditional values of national American miss. I learned how to have poise, self-confidence and I received great interview skills. The girls and I bonded over our trip to Space Mountain and our adventures on the Hollywood tour. It was an unbelievable experience.
To my mom and dad I want to thank you for supporting me from the very beginning. You have always been there from pinning me up to making the last minute touches before going on stage. To my director Matt Leverton, thank you for supporting me and my family in this amazing journey that started out in your preteen division. To my NAMILY I am forever grateful that you all are such a great support system. For all the contestants tonight just know that you have come so far on an amazing journey, so tonight when you leave hold your head up high knowing that you’ve accomplished so much this weekend. To my successor, this is just the beginning of a dream come true. Spread your wings and take every opportunity that comes your way. You are a girl with dreams, you are National American Miss. I wish you great success in all of your endeavors.
I am your 2014 Miss South Carolina Teen Aundrea Green.

Congratulations, and welcome to the Miss South Carolina Pageant! I am truly looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. This weekend is going to be very exciting and an adventure you will always remember!
Being Miss SC Jr. Teen has been such a blessing to me. It allowed me the opportunity to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House Charities, making pop tab bracelets, which helped to raise money for the organization. I also volunteered for Big Brothers Big Sisters at their Bowl for Kid’s Sake and helped at the spring 2015 Special Olympics. All the while, meeting some amazing people along the way!
Going to Nationals in California is an experience I will never forget! From competing with the best of the best to touring the streets of Hollywood, my time at Nationals is something I will treasure forever! I can honestly say I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.
Remember to always smile, have fun, and make as many new friends as you can. Above all else, believe in yourself. You are already a winner!
As my journey comes to an end and a new one begins for one of you special girls, I wish you all the best life can bring!
Wishing you the Best Always,

Dear National American Miss Oregon Contestants,
I would like to say welcome to an exciting and unforgettable weekend! This weekend will be a time to make friends, rock the stage, show your talents and best of all feel like Cinderella! The first thing you should do is smile and be yourself! If I have learned anything this year as your 2014 Oregon Teen Cover Girl it’s that there is nothing better than being yourself! I am so excited to meet each and every one of you! It has been nothing short of a dream come true to have had the honor of representing the beautiful state of Oregon as your state teen cover girl!
My favorite memories are getting to meet my sister queens for the very first time, volunteering in my community, attending the Washington state pageant and of course going to sunny California for the National pageant. Where I was blessed with the title of National Teen Cover Model and winner of the National Teen Volunteer Service and other amazing awards! I had so much fun making new friends and making memories.
This year I also got to hold a dress drive to benefit Abby’s Closet to help prom dreams come true, donate food and toys to The Ronald McDonald House and to help with the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure! I have learned so much from my year and I will never forget the memories that I have made and life lessons I have learned!
I’d like to say a huge thank you to my family and friends that have supported me since day one! Y’all are the best cheer section anybody could ask for! Thank you to my amazing sister queens, you are all so bright and beautiful and I am so glad I got to spend my year with you! It truly has been a privilege and I love you all! Thank you to Matt, our state director and his amazing staff for being there to encourage me the whole year. But most of all a HUGE thanks to my mom and dad for always making sure I look and feel like a real life Cinderella!
Good luck and have fun! Brandi Urban

Just one year ago I was on the NAM stage for my very first time in my very first pageant. I couldn’t believe it when they called my name! Over the past year I have been VERY busy. Being in parades is one of my favorite memories because I got to see so many smiling faces. My glasses are a big part of who I am and it’s important to me that other kids with glasses know that they’re special and can do anything. I worked a lot with the See to Read campaign which provides vision screenings throughout the state. My family and I did the SOLVE beach clean-up, too. That was super fun and beautiful day! My sister queens and I donated items to the Ronald McDonald House and volunteered at Race for Cure. I love serving with my sister queens! Another favorite was working with Toys for Tots during the holidays and filming a commercial for them! And of course, there was Nationals! What a blast!
To me, being a queen means helping others and having fun wherever you go. It means being nice and doing your best. It’s about being brave and working hard. Being a NAM queen is a big responsibility and I have loved every bit of it!
To the contestants competing this year the most important things to remember are to be yourself and have fun! Be sure to practice, smile at the judges, be confident and ROCK THAT STAGE! Good luck!
