Julia Rowland, 2014 Florida Jr. Teen Queen has had a busy year representing National American Miss. She had a blast during the holiday season volunteering with the Salvation Army spreading holiday cheer and giving back to her community. Julia also initiated Harvest for Heroes Outreach Project for her service project at nationals. The purpose of Harvest for Heroes Outreach Project is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty communities and provide volunteer opportunities for the residents of South Florida to express their appreciation to members of their Military. As a daughter of a retired Navy Captain and cousin of an Active Duty Army Soldier currently serving in Afghanistan, she understands what conditions the Military personnel are under and wanted to contribute by boosting our troops’ morale. With the wonderful support of her church’s congregation, Julia was able to produce over 500 care packages. She was shocked and overwhelmed to have received a beautiful plaque along with a letter thanking her for her care packages from the United States Army troops serving in Afghanistan. They even flew a flag over Bagram, Afghanistan in honor of Julia’s church. Julia also had an exciting weekend in Boca Raton representing NAM as the emcee at the American Girl Doll fashion show in support of the Palm Beach County Literacy Coalition.

Dear amazing contestants:
I have done so much since becoming Miss Georgia Junior Preteen Queen. I volunteered to play the harp at the DeKalb County festival, a back to school news expo and the Ronald McDonald House. It was so much fun meeting several public officials. I served food at Tour de Pink, a race that raises money for breast cancer. It was so much fun volunteering and spending time with elderly. I even let the elderly (including the men) try on my crown.
Being Miss Georgia has meant so much to me. I was proud to represent Georgia and I was so happy that Senator Isakson blogged that meeting me as Miss Georgia made his day. National American Miss has given me so much confidence and many opportunities. I hope it does the same for all of you.
I wish all of you the best of luck while you are competing. I hope you make many new friends, have a lot of fun and enjoy the experience. Always remember that you don’t need a crown on your head to be a queen.

Hello future leaders of America! This letter is to inform you of the amazing year that I have experienced with National American Miss. Throughout my reign, I was able to impact many people in positive ways. A few of my endeavors consisted of donating over 300 stuffed animals to Brenners Children’s Hospital, volunteering at Musick’s Dance Arts Center and teaching over 50 girls and boys to dance, and also I was able to encourage young children about how important it is to be physically fit by volunteering at a local preschool in my area. Being the National American Miss North Carolina Teen was not just about the glitz and glamour that I received, it was about impacting so many people’s lives and inspiring young girls that they can be achieve their hopes and dreams. A highlight of my reign was competing in Nationals in Anaheim, California. This experience was so astounding and extremely rewarding. I was able to meet girls from all over the United States and explore the beautiful state of California. I am wishing good luck to all the wonderful and beautiful contestants this weekend! You all are in for such a treat and the experience of your life. Enjoy this time and I can’t wait for the next Teen Queen to experience the joy that I have experienced with National American Miss!

It has been a wonderful journey being your National American Miss North Carolina Pre- Teen Queen. I have met so many nice people along the way. Receiving my Letter of Recognition from the Mayor at a city hall meeting was really a great feeling. I have enjoyed every moment of volunteer work and charity events that I have been a part of. The March of Dimes, the ALS Walk, The Child Advocacy Center, “Rip the Runway” held in Spring Lake, North Carolina which was a kids fashion show hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, to benefit the Boys and Girls Club, “Kids Rock The Runway” for North Carolina Fashion Week held in Fayetteville, my hometown, to benefit Meals on Wheels, the Martin Luther King Jr. Parade, and donating the books and school supplies to my community church.
I had a great time at Nationals and met lots of new friends that I still keep in touch with. That was my first time in California and I really had a blast.
I would like to thank NAM for all your help and support, and I would like to wish my successor the very best. It has been a great experience to serve my community and to represent the Great State of North Carolina.
Love to All,
Your 2014 Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen Queen

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!
