MissKentuckyTeenPageantLouisville is the new site for a prominent pageant that showcases the talents of area teens 

(Louisville KY) On Saturday, June 25th at 8:00 pm one young lady will walk across the stage to receive her crown in the 2016 Miss Kentucky’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant.  Teens from all over the Bluegrass will travel to Louisville to compete for cash scholarships and an assortment of other prizes.

Twenty-three young ladies between the ages of 13 to 17 will be at the Kentucky Center for the Arts located in downtown Louisville from June 24th-25th.  Each contestant will go through two preliminary phases of competition.  Then on Saturday night, the Top 11 scorers will participate in the final competition where one will be crowned Miss Kentucky’s Outstanding Teen.

Each contestant will be judged on talent, a private interview, lifestyle and fitness in sportswear, evening wear and on-stage question.  The winner on June 25th will represent Kentucky at the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant in Orlando, Florida from August 2-6th.

Ashley Miller, Executive Director for the teen pageant and Vice President of the Miss Kentucky board says “This system is a great opportunity for the teens of Kentucky to showcase their talents and win scholarships that can assist them in paying for college. The Miss America organization is about empowering young women with the skills they need to be successful leaders both in their careers and in their communities.  It is largely because of the skills I learned during my time competing in this system that I have been so successful in my career and community.”
