Calling all teens! The Miss New Bedford’s Outstanding Teen pageant is seeking contestants from New Bedford and its surrounding cities and towns to compete in its upcoming pageant! An information session will be on December 8th for anyone interested in learning more.
Do you know a teen that would make a great role model? One that wants to make a difference in her community? Could your teen benefit from developing leadership, confidence, and speaking skills? How about scholarship money?!
This year’s winner will receive a $500 college scholarship, entry to the Miss Massachusetts’ Outstanding Teen pageant, plus additional gifts from community sponsors. The winner will also spend an entire year making appearances, and engaging in various community service and leadership opportunities. Runners-up and top scoring contestants will also receive scholarships and/or recognition.
Participation is open to teen girls between the ages of 13 and 18 from any of the following cities/town throughout Greater New Bedford: Acushnet, Assonet, Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Freetown, Lakeville, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Rochester, and Westport.
Contestants compete in five phases of competition: Interview, Talent, Physical Fitness (a brief, group Zumba-style routine), On-Stage Question, and Evening Wear. Note: This is not a glitz/glam pageant. It does not require an expensive wardrobe. No experience is necessary!
A full information session will be held on Saturday December 8th at 2:00 PM at the Cheryl McCormack Academy of Dance located at 731 Tarkiln Hill Road, New Bedford. Attendance does not obligate competing, however interested contestants are required to attend. If this date does not work, we encourage contestants to contact us to discuss a secondary date.
