The Southern Gazette - - PEOPLE - BY COLIN FAR­RELL

LAWN, NL – Bai­ley Tar­rant of Lawn has been se­lected as Miss Teenage New­found­land and Labrador. She was awarded the ti­tle on May 8. “It wasn’t a tra­di­tional pageant, as it’s or­ga­nized by the na­tional di­rec­tor of Miss Teenage Canada,” Tar­rant told The South­ern Gazette in an in­ter­view held over so­cial me­dia.

“Any­one who ap­plied was given a phone in­ter­view with (the di­rec­tor). Af­ter scor­ing that and re­view­ing my ap­pli­ca­tion, she crowned me as Miss Teenage New­found­land and Labrador.”

Two other girls were given re­gional ti­tles, said Tar­rant.

She said she was ex­cited to be se­lected as Miss Teenage NL.

“I was ecstatic. Pageantry has had a huge part in shap­ing me into who I am to­day, so to win such a ti­tle was so heart­warm­ing,” she said.

Win­ning is a chance to help pro­mote New­found­land and Labrador, said Tar­rant.

“I love my province, I’ve al­ways worn New­found­land and Labrador on my sleeve, now I get to wear it on my sash and I couldn’t be more grate­ful.”

Tar­rant said from here she will take part in the Miss Teenage Canada com­pe­ti­tion in Toronto at the Queen El­iz­a­beth Theatre Aug. 13.

Bai­ley Tar­rant of Lawn will com­pete for the Miss Teenage Canada ti­tle in Au­gust.
