Sierra Heath of Fort Wayne was recently selected to participate in the 2018 Miss Teen Pageant competition taking place on Sunday, April 15, 2018. Sierra learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviews in the local area. Sierra submitted an application and participated in her interview session conducted by this year’s Pageant Coordinator.

Sierra will compete for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts distributed to contestants. Of the four age divisions including young ladies ages 7 through 20, she will compete in the Miss Teen division. In each of these divisions, contestants compete in modeling routines including casual wear and formal wear. Most importantly, Sierra will display her personality while interviewing with this year’s judging panel. In each phase of the competition, the panel uses personality as the number one criteria for judging.

If Sierra were to win the title of Miss Teen she would represent her community at the National Pageant taking place in Orlando, Florida. Each winner receives an expense paid trip to Orlando for six days and five nights. At the National Competition, contestants from around the nation compete for their share of over $30,000 in prizes.

Community businesses, organizations and private individuals will assist Sierra in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor for her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals and financial support, which will allow Sierra the confidence and preparation for this year’s Preliminary Pageant.

Any business, organization or private individual interested in becoming a sponsor to Sierra may contact the Miss Teen Pageant Coordinator at 1.877.910.4190, no later than April 13, 2018. Please include Finalist Sierra’s #43007.
