Your North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Queen 2014, has been busy making a difference in her community this year. I’ve donated schools supplies for students of Cumberland County Schools, participated in a walk for ALS, volunteered at a “Kidtopia” event, rang the bell for the Salvation Army, collected “Toys for Tots,” donated books to assist with literacy efforts, and assisted in raising over $35,000 for my local Child Advocacy Center. I’ve also sang the National Anthem during basketball games and a 2015 graduation ceremony, met the Mayor, rode in parades, and made many other appearances this year. I can’t believe it’s all coming to an end shortly…..
Winning the state queen title was one of my personal goals and I will always cherish that moment. Through my efforts I’ve shown that it doesn’t matter how old you are, we can “All” make a positive impact on others if we try. I’ve learned that anything is possible with hard work and determination.
I would like all the contestants to understand that you are your biggest cheerleader and biggest competitor. You have a busy weekend ahead that will be packed with fun! Remember to always stand Tall, bring a big Smile, and let your inner light Shine. You are All STARS!
To the new North Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, your year is almost here! Be bold, be brave, be positive, and most of all be YOU!
Amaris Shipman

2014 National American Miss North Carolina Teen Queen has some encouraging words for this years contestants!

June 24th, 2015

 

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!

Sincerely,

Eboni Wiley

Nikya Hightower, National American Miss North Carolina Pre-Teen Queen, looks back on her year in service!

June 24th, 2015

Nikya

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

Lexie Spooner, National American Miss South Carolina Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, welcomes this years contestants!

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

June 19, 2015

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.

Dear Contestants,

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,

Hannah Jacks
