En­try dead­line ex­tended for pageant

The Compass - - SPORTS -

The ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line for en­tries into this year’s Miss Teen Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion pageant has been ex­tended un­til Aug. 15.

The orig­i­nal dead­line was July 31.

Or­ga­niz­ers are call­ing on young women from the re­gion be­tween the ages of 13 and 18 to con­sider the event, which takes place Sept. 17 at the S. W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace. The event co­in­cides with the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion Fall Fair.

The pageant was started in 2005, and fo­cuses on in­tel­li­gence, aca­demics, lead­er­ship, vol­un­teer work and com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, said pageant co­or­di­na­tor Sab­rina

“ We do not con­sider our­selves a beauty pageant,” said Jenk­ins.

“ We pro­vide young women in the area with a pos­i­tive en­rich­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. It is our goal to build self-con­fi­dence and re­ward these young women for their achieve­ments, goals and ac­com­plish­ments.”

The win­ner will travel all over Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion, at­tend­ing func­tions, events and fes­ti­vals.

The win­ner is given the op­tion of rep­re­sent­ing Trin­i­tyCon­cep­tion at a pro­vin­cial or na­tional com­pe­ti­tion. The win­ner re­ceives $ 400 in cash, a plaque, photo shoot and more.

There’s also a first and sec­ond run­ner-up, Miss Teen Friend­ship and Miss Teen Pho­to­genic.

There’s also a Peo­ple’s Choice Award, which is de­cided upon by the au­di­ence dur­ing the night of the event.

En­try is open to con­tes­tants from all over the Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion re­gion.

Con­tes­tants will com­pete and be judged on the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: per­sonal in­tro­duc­tion, in­ter­view, evening gown, speech, ca­sual wear and im­promptu ques­tions.

The reign­ing Miss Teen Trin­ity-Con­cep­tion, La­toya Boland of Bri­gus, will be on hand to pass the crown and sash over to her suc­ces­sor.
