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

Spencer Petty, National American Miss Tennessee Teen Queen, brings the Miss Amazing Pageant to Tennessee!

March 4th, 2015

Spencer Petty, National American Miss Tennessee Teen Queen and Director, of an inspiring 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Tennessee Miss Amazing Pageant. The mission of the Miss Amazing Pageant TM is to provide opportunities for girls and young women with disabilities to raise self-confidence through the skills learned in pageantry in a supportive environment. Even though this organization had been around since 2007 in 20 other states, it had not been held in Tennessee. So Spencer brought the first Miss Amazing pageant for the young ladies with disabilities in Tennessee on Saturday, Jan 3 and Sunday, Jan 4, 2015. After competing in National American Miss pageants for nine years she knew what pageants had done for her in increasing her confidence and she wanted to offer this same experience to young ladies with disabilities. They successfully reached their goal for the first year by:

  • registering 15 young ladies to participate
  • received over 500 “likes” on facebook
  • recruited 40 volunteers to help (Miss Amazing Pageants are run 100% with only volunteers)
  • secured over $10,000 of sponsor donations
  • collected 66 lbs of canned goods to donate to food bank (entry fee is 5 cans of food) and
  • increased the confidence of the young ladies that were given a chance to
    • walk on stage and introduce themselves to the packed house of 150 family and friends
    • interview one-on-one with three judges and
    • learn how to be poised and graceful during evening gown.
When the weekend started they met timid and unsure young ladies that required much assistance but by the finale show they bravely executed each component without any assistance. Every participant is crowned a Princess and receives a trophy for their bravery and effort. We crowned the five age division Queens for Tennessee and they will be representing our state at the National Miss Amazing Pageant to be held in Los Angeles at the same time the Special Olympics World Games will be there in July, 2015. The Miss Amazing PageantTM is now in almost thirty states and has donated around $50,000 and 1,000 pounds of food to community organizations across the nation.
They were also featured in the Tennessean, check out the article here!
