Former Miss Utah JPT Featured on Magazine Cover

Miah Green, who was your beautiful Miss Utah Jr. Pre-Teen 2014, has been keeping busy since her reign! Miah was featured on the cover of the February issue of The Beauty Battalion, a magazine that provides "a refreshing approach to the industry... Real People. Real Beauty." In addition to the Cover, Miah got a full 12 page spread (aka my dream) that highlights her amazing accomplishments as an actress, model, aerial artist, and most importantly, humanitarian! 

Miah was featured as this months "True Beauty Award Winner" and she deserves it for so many reasons! She of course is a beautiful young lady on the outside, but it's what's inside her heart that truly makes her shine! As a National American Miss girl, Miah has embodied what it is to be a positive role model. 

"Not only does Miah help those in need, her non-profit organization, Caring Crowns 4 a Cause, has helped numerous girls earn the Presidential Volunteer Service Award by providing service opportunities," the magazine says.

WOW! What an inspiration. We love to see our NAM girls not only giving back to their community, but supporting other girls to do the same! We could not be more proud of Miah!

Miss MO Pre-Teen Serves as Volunteer for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Miss Missouri Pre-Teen Abbie Mueller joined volunteers in the fight against Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes before heading to the National Pageant in November. She greeted participants in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Walk To End Type One in St. Louis, Missouri. Abbie met walkers of all ages, especially T1D patients who wore blue bandanas, by welcoming them to the event and encouraging them to stay after the walk for the post-event party. 

She also greeted walkers at the finish line with celebration bells and directed them to the party.  Event coordinators advised that the volunteer efforts helped to direct over 20,000 participants to the party, a significant increase from last year’s attendance.  One of Abbie’s friends and walk participant Ashley (who also happens to be a former NAM competitor) is a T1 diabetic who wears a continuous blood glucose monitor, so Abbie has learned much about the daily efforts that go into the management of T1D.  Enjoy these photos of Abbie in action at the event!

Miss Missouri Teen Volunteers at 5K to Benefit Vicki Welsh Fund

Your Miss Missouri Teen, Jessica Hanner, was honored to volunteer at the 5K Whisper Walk/Run in Zona Rosa. She enjoyed setting food out for the runners and being a cheerleader for the them as they ran the course. So many people, including ovarian cancer survivors and their families, participated despite the inclement weather! As Jessica and other volunteers cheered on runners and walkers, her brother and mom walked the 5K. One of her favorite parts was seeing the memory wall which was full of photos and heartfelt tributes to those who have battled the disease. A big thank you is due to Dave Welsh for allowing Jessica be a part of such a great event that generates awareness and helps educate women about the risk factors and symptoms of ovarian cancer. The 5K Whisper Walk/Run benefits the Vicki Welsh Fund by raising awareness of the disease and its symptoms. Please visit vickiwelshfund.org for more information, to find out about upcoming events, and to see how you can be a part of finding the cure.

Mikala Peterson, Miss MN PT, Donates Books and School Supplies

One of the most important parts of National American Miss is the emphasis we put on community involvement. We think it is so valuable to give back, and that's why we make 10% of each girl's overall score based on a simple donation of a book or school supply! We collect thousands and thousands of books and school supplies across the country. Our new State Queens get to take those items donated and personally delivery them to an organization of their choice. Your Miss Minnesota Pre-Teen, Mikala Peterson, chose to donate some of those books and school supplies to her hometown schools! Mora High School was her first stop. Pictured below is Mikala delivering some items to Principal Brent Nelson. Way to go Mikala!

Miss MO Pre-Teen Abbie Mueller Honors Veterans at Welcome Home Event

Miss Missouri Pre-Teen, Abbie Mueller, was honored to be invited to participate in the Welcome Arrival Ceremony for the St. Louis Honor Flight at Lambert St. Louis Airport, welcoming home veterans from the Korean, WWII, and Vietnam wars. After leaving early in the morning, the veterans spend the day in Washington D.C. visiting the memorials of their respective service locations, and come home in the evening to hundreds of family members and volunteers welcoming and thanking them for their service. Abbie met with the families of the servicemembers, the volunteers of the Honor Flight organization, and most importantly, personally greeted and thanked each veteran for their service. She helped present each veteran with a Challenge Chip (reminiscent of the challenge coins that are presented by national military officials to soldiers in active service), a certificate, a flag, and a Quilt of Valor. 

As the daughter of a retired U.S. Army officer who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was injured in service, Abbie has a special appreciation for these brave Americans and enjoys hearing their stories of sacrifice and dedication from when they served. You can follow along with Abbie’s year as Miss Missouri Pre-Teen on Instagram at NAM_MO_PRETEEN_2016.
