2013 Contestants and Families,
“2012 was THE BEST YEAR OF MY LIFE!”… and I pray 2013 will be the same for YOU! June 30, 2012 was completely life changing! My family was so proud I was afforded the privilege of serving as the 2012 Miss North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen!
This year, I have served with my church, the Ronald McDonald House, the Get Heeled 5K, the Great Glow Run and made appearances throughout NC. At NCCU, I escorted the Chancellor onto the football field at a nationally televised football game and announced the winners at the “Eddie” awards.
In addition to serving the community, I met 45 of the nations Jr. Pre-Teen superstars at the National Pageant! I proudly represented NC and made new friends from all over the U.S. I’m not sure who had more fun at Disneyland, me or my brother, but I will always have the “bragging rights” that I was the reason our family was able to experience Disneyland!
I am so appreciative of my loving and supportive family, Mr. Matt Leverton, the NAMily and my sweet “blonde bombshell” sister queens! I have loved spending time with ALL of you this year!
The life skills I have learned through NAM are PRICELESS! I encourage you to enjoy this weekend and EVERYTHING it has to offer! There can only be one winner on Saturday, but if you listen and learn, you will leave improved in ways you never could have imagined! NAM will be one of the best experiences of your life! Enjoy EVERY moment!

As my year as the National American Miss Oregon Teen comes to an end I would like to reflect on all the amazing experiences and friendships this program has provided for me.
During my year I rode in numerous parades, volunteered for the Oregon Food Bank and had the time of my life at Nationals in California. I would like to thank Mr. Matt for this amazing experience as well as my sister queens for making it so memorable.
I would also like to extend a huge thank you to the people that supported me throughout this journey. Thank you to Shelly at Haley James for being my fashion advisor, Jamie O’Neill at Skull Sugar Cosmetics for making me look like a queen and Angie from the Bridal Gallery in Salem for finding me that perfect dress. And of course I can’t forget my ever supportive family, Greg, thank you for always reminding me to practice and always believing in me. Mom and Dad thank you for all you have done this year, from flying me back from Nevada, coming with me to appearances and cheering me on at Nationals I truly cannot thank you enough.
To the contestants, I hope that this weekend you not only grow as a young woman but also as a daughter, sister and friend. I encourage each and every one of you to step outside your comfort zone and make the most of this weekend.
Best of luck

Dear Miss Oregon PreTeen Contestants,
It’s hard to believe that just one year ago, I was crowned Oregon’s Preteen Queen. The time has gone by so fast. There have been many exciting opportunities for me because of NAM and I am so grateful for them all.
My year has been filled with parades, volunteering for community organizations and having fun with all the
Oregon Royalty. We spent hours decorating for parades, collecting donations for local charities like the Teddy Bear Parade, Toy and Joy, Oregon Food Bank, making a meal at the Ronald McDonald House and more. I could not imagine a greater group of girls to spend the day at the pumpkin patch, share a holiday sleepover, support Mr. Matt at open calls and representing the entire NAMily.
A funfilled week in California at Nationals where I got to meet some amazing girls from all across the country. The highlights of my week was winning the National Spokesmodel title, being 1st runner up in Talent and Actress and in the Top 10 overall.
Cheiska, Sydney and Alexandra are such amazing role models and I know they will be the best women of this Century. Stacey, Tia and Jeanneil, no one could have asked for more amazing Cover Girls! You are all so supportive and just fun to hang out with. Lily and Ilyarah, you are the most special little Sister Queens a girl could have. National Cover Girls Kyra and Isabella rounded out our crew and added a lot to the mix.
Mr. Leverton, Brittany Clute, Lacey Fitzgerald and the rest of the staff at NAM, I love you and thanks for putting up with me for the last year. I sure appreciate everything you have done for me.
No matter who goes home with titles and crowns this weekend, you are all smart, special and most of all, beautiful. The best advice I can give you is to just be yourself, make new friends and enjoy the every moment because the weekend goes fast, but your memories last forever.
To my successor, cherish these moments like they could disappear any second and love every person that becomes a part of your journey. You’ve got an exciting year ahead of you!
Your 2012 Oregon Preteen Queen,

National American Miss Ohio Queens got the opportunity to participate in the Red’s opening day parade in Cincinnati. It was covered on all 4 news channels in Cincinnati. The National American Miss Queens were the only queens in the parade, what an amazing opportunity! They only allow one “Queen” unit in the parade – last year it was 2 Miss Universe System Queens. The girls had such a great time!

National American Miss North Carolina Teen Queen Megan Ebert enjoyed being able to spend one beautiful October Saturday morning and afternoon with fellow community members and a good friend of hers as well as led the Legs For Life walk to help raise money for her local hospital. She got to know her sister queen Naomi Whitehead as they served at the Ronald McDonald House and got to spend time with two adorable little girls as well. Megan was also able to spend more time getting to know her sister queens Abigail Satter and Carter Brown at the State Fair and being able to enjoy a Nascar race with the Faith Anne Yeley and Hannah Gold, thanks to Mr. Yeley. She can’t express the amazement and total joy she has felt throughout the entire week at Nationals in Anaheim, CA! Being able to spend time with her Carolina sister queen Casey Johnson and many more. And a huge Thank You to her mother for being there for her and being her #1 fan. She then went on to enjoy a good ole December Christmas parade representing National American Miss. To end the year of 2012, she was blessed and honored to have spent a weekend in SC cheering at Shrine Bowl with her fellow Bulldog cheerleaders as well as being able to make an appearance as the National American Miss NC Teen. 2012 was a good year and Megan feels truly blessed! She is looking forward to the blessings God has planned for her for 2013!”

National American Miss North Carolina Jr.Pre-Teen Queen Carter Brown had fun playing basketball at North Carolina Central University. Carter and her teammates had a great time playing basketball at this very neat experience. This season she and her teammates were able to play basketball at halftime of the Duke, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina Central University women’s basketball games. NAM girls do it all!
