Dear South Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen contestants,

I am your 2014 Miss South Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen state queen. Since I was crowned queen last summer, I have done so many exciting things to make a difference in my community. I became a volunteer at my local animal shelter and have helped out a lot with the animals. I also organized a supply drive and bake sale. It was so fun and exciting to see how many people cared about the animals. I helped to raise over $350 and a truckload of supplies for the animals. I also have been a part of other fundraisers for the animal shelter.

Being a state queen has meant a lot to me. I now have a responsibility to be a positive role model to other girls. Earning this title has made me more confident with myself and has taught me so many lifelong skills.

If I could offer any advice to other girls in this pageant, it would be this: Always, always stay true to yourself and have confidence in who you are. It can be scary getting up in front of people you don’t know, especially if you are a little country girl from a small town like me! Always hold your head high and wear your invisible crown. I wish the best of luck to you, not only on your pageant weekend, but in everything that you do!

Sincerely Yours,

Lexie Spooner
