TROY — Rachel Martin of Troy was recently selected to participate in the 2016 Miss Teen pageant competition that will take place on Sunday, April 10.
Martin learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local Dayton area. Rachel submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s Dayton Pageant Coordinator.
Rachel will be competing for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Rachel will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of two divisions that will have young ladies ages of 13 through 19 competing in modeling routines, which include Casual Wear and Formal Wear. Most importantly, Rachel will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.
If Rachel were to win the title of Miss Teen, she would represent Dayton and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Fla. More than $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the National Competition while each winner enjoys this expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando, Fla.
Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Rachel in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor to her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support which will allow Rachel to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year’s Pageant.
Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Martin may contact the Miss Teen pageant coordinator, at (877) 403-6678.
