Being crowned Miss Teen Washington and Miss Teen USA isn’t just about the crown—this year, over $900,000 in scholarships will be given to deserving young women.
This year’s contestants for Miss Teen Washington come from all over the state.
Pierce County Teen USA, Kendall Sadler, is in the running for Miss Teen Washington and Most Photogenic.
According to the Miss Washington USA website, Sadler is a junior at Bellarmine Prep and enjoys playing competitive soccer and participating in Lion Pride. She hopes to become an attorney specializing in disability law and special needs advocacy. The teen also volunteers with Super Saturdays, which provides respite care to families with children on the Autism Spectrum.
This year’s pageant will showcase contestants from all across the state of Washington, providing them with nearly $900,000 in prizes, scholarships, cash and life-changing opportunities. The Miss Washington USA and Miss Washington Teen USA pageants will be held this weekend, Oct. 20 – 21 in the Seattle area.
The Miss Teen titleholder (contestants are between 14-18 years old,) will go on to compete for the title of Miss Teen USA and the adult Miss titleholder (contestants between 18-26 years old) will compete live on NBC for the Miss USA title. That winner will then compete for Miss Universe.
