NATIONAL PRESS RELEASE

Posted by Ken on June 13, 2010 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

What better place for a group of princesses to converge than at a castle? The Doubletree Castle Hotel in Orlando, Florida played host to Princess America Pageants 2010 week-long national event. Contestants from across the country met in the Sunshine State to compete for a combined total of over $25,000 is cash, prizes, scholarships, and awards.

 

Produced by Perspectives Productions, Princess America Pageants launched its inaugural national event by crowning titleholders in three divisions. These include the National Junior Teen (13 – 15 years of age) National Teen (16 – 18 years of age) and National Miss (19 – 28 years of age). Phases of competition, each worth 25% of the total score, included Physical Fitness, Personal Expression, Private Interview, and Evening Wear.

 

After arriving in Orlando the delegates registered, and then, along with their families, enjoyed a Welcome luncheon themed as a summer garden party. Many wearing floral prints and hats, they prepared for orientation and their first rehearsal in the hotel’s Garden Pavilion Ballroom.

 

On Wednesday morning the contestants boarded a charter bus for the Gaylord Palms Resort. While at the Gaylord they were each paired with stylists from the Aveda Institute who did the delegates hair and makeup for a professional fashion photo shoot. Wearing formal wear, each state representative met with numerous photographers including Deanna Meredith, Tyler Matkowski, and Brion Price. When the shoot concluded, contestants once again loaded the bus, had a quick lunch, and departed for the Give Kids the World Village. The contestants enjoyed a video and personal tour of the village, which culminated with the presentation of a check for over $2200 that this year’s participants had raised to donate to GKTW. After an emotional visit to the village, delegates boarded the bus yet again to enjoy an evening at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament.

 

Thursday morning began with a poolside swimwear photo shoot with both Deanna Meredith and Star Studded Photography’s Tyler Matkowski. After lunch the contestants participated in the optional modeling competition. Delegates then prepared for the evening’s main event, a silent auction & gala dubbed “The Pink & Black Ball.” Special awards were given out at this time, as well as the announcement of the optional modeling competition winner, Oklahoma Miss 2010 Lindsey Harvey. Lindsey received $500 cash and the chance to appear in several publications and fashion shows in the coming year. After an elegant dinner, attendees also bid on items brought by each state representative in an attempt to raise money for the American Cancer Society, as well as for the Princess America Scholarship Fund.

 

Friday began with a general rehearsal for all contestants and then began their first on-stage competition with Physical Fitness and On-Stage questions. Host J. Scot Reid sat with each delegate individually and asked two questions, the first directly from their fact sheet and the second being something relevant to the world around them. The evening concluded with the Junior Teen and Teens meeting with the celebrity panel of judges for a six minute interview. This year’s judges included Big Brother contestant and Passions actor Josh Souza, former America’s Southern Teen winner and Minute to Win It contestant Rachel Adams, fashion expert and world traveler Dallas Arceneaux, former Miss Texas and first Runner Up to Miss America Shilah Phillips, and professional model, actor, author, and modeling agency owner Kaya Wittenburg.

 

On Saturday morning the Miss delegates had their chance to interview with the judges and then all contestants met for their final rehearsal. The show began promptly at 7pm with all state representatives competing in Personal Expression and Evening Wear. After entertainment by Miss Louisiana contestant Becca Price, and pageant judge/professional entertainer Shilah Phillips, the results were ready to be announced.

 

The Second Runner Up in the Junior Teen division was Montana Junior Teen Megan Johnson and host J. Scot Reid announced South Carolina Junior Teen Emilie Sears as the First Runner Up!

 

The Teen results were announced next, beginning with Oklahoma Teen Madeline Cole taking the Fourth Runner Up honor. Third Runner Up was Massachusetts Teen Kay Tetreault followed by Second Runner Up, Rhode Island Teen Mackenzie Schmeller. As the audience held their breath, Michigan Teen Danielle Goike received the distinction of being the First Runner Up and Tennessee Teen Katie Kennedy was crowned Princess America Pageants’ National Teen 2010. Katie is from Clarksville and a recent high school graduate. She plans to attend Austin Peay State University in the fall.

 

The final results of the night were only seconds away. As the Miss delegates gathered on stage the announcement. Wyoming Miss Nikki Cole, also the Pageantry Magazine Spirit Award winner, was the Fourth Runner Up. Georgia Miss Kristen Little was the Third Runner Up and Rhode Island Miss Christina Kaian was Second Runner Up. While the room when silent with anticipation, the final two moved forward and awaited the judge’s decision. Oklahoma Miss Lindsey Harvey took home First Runner Up honors and Arkansas Miss Allison Kusenberger was crowned Princess America Pageants’ National Miss 2010. The audience erupted in applause as Allison was met on stage by her sister queen Katie. Allison is from Little Rock, Arkansas and an honor student at Baylor University. She plans to one day start her own skin care line.

 

The year ahead is one of great promise for the new titleholders and the Princess America Pageant system.
