Shelly Jones and Ainek Jenkins, both of Chattanooga, have been selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen Chattanooga/Knoxville pageant competition that will take place on Sunday, March 16. Ms. Jones and Ms. Jenkins learned of their acceptance into this year's competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local Chattanooga/Knoxville area. They submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year's Chattanooga/Knoxville pageant coordinator.
Ms. Jones and Ms. Jenkins will be competing for their share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. They will be competing in the Miss Teen ivision, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7-19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Ms. Jones and Ms. Jenkins will display their personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year's Chattanooga/Knoxville judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.
If Ms. Jones or Ms. Jenkins were to win the title of Miss Teen Chattanooga/Knoxville, she would represent Chattanooga/Knoxville and the surrounding communities at the national competition that will take place in Orlando. Over $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the national competition while each winner enjoys an expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.
Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Ms. Jones or Ms. Jenkins in participating in this year's competition by becoming an official sponsor to them. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support which will allow Ms. Jones and Ms. Jenkins to become very confident and well-prepared contestants in this year's Chattanooga/Knoxville Pageant, said officials.
Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Ms. Jones or Ms. Jenkins may contact the Miss Teen Chattanooga/Knoxville pageant coordinator, at 877.403-6678.
