Meet Virginia (Teen)…

After being judged myself all year, I was happy to sit on the other side of the table and help the Miss Virginia’s Outstanding Teen organization select their new titleholders for the Teen and Preteen division. The Teen Queen will go on to represent Virginia at the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen pageant in Orlando, Florida and frequently stand alongside Miss Virginia as she makes her apperances around the state.
The criteria are the same as for the Miss contestants: Interview, Evening Gown, Talent, and Lifestyle/Fitness.

Portions of the pageant were aired on ABC affiliates (including ABC-8 here in the District) last night. It was fun to watch myself at the judges table after intently watching wach of the girls on stage!

The winners were:
Preteen – Dominick Fink
Teen – Caitlin Brunell

Shown here: Miss DC Trainer, (also a judge!) John Morris and I with Caitlin’s proud parents – her father is Mark Brunell of the Redskins.
