Local teen selected for pageant

Pageant girlTaylor Casey of Granville was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen Albany/Poughkeepsie pageant competition that will take place on Sunday April 27. 

Casey learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local area. Casey submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s local pageant coordinator.

Casey will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Casey will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages 7 to 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Casey will also 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.

The winner of the local pageant will advance to the national competition in Orlando, Fla. Over $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the national competition.

Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Casey 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 Casey to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year’s event.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Casey may contact Allison Koehler at 307-0677, or at ahkthecat1092@gmail.com.
