Teen Contestants

People's Choice Award Online Voting!

At this year’s pageant we are holding a special fundraiser called the People’s Choice Award. Online and onsite, we will be collecting your votes for your favorite contestant for the People’s Choice Award. $1.00 = 1 vote and a portion of the proceeds will go directly to this year's selected charity, Smile Train, an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate.

Voting will take place online and onsite right up to the start of the Pageant Finals on Sunday afternoon. Cast your votes before the finals show begins at 4pm in order for your votes to count! During the awards portion of the Pageant Finals, we will announce the People’s Choice Award winner!

This is a wonderful opportunity to vote for your special contestant, and great way to support a great organization. To place your votes online, simply enter the number of votes you wish to cast in the form below your contestant and click the Vote button. You will be redirected to a payment form to enter your information and provide your payment.

I would like to give a HUGE wave of love to those close to me for being so supportive and compassionate as I made the decision to move back to North Dakota. Although life took a complete 180 from my first career intentions, I am so thankful for the opportunities life has granted me; a major one being this pageant and the chance to compete alongside a beautiful, empowering group of women. A big thank you to Get-R-Done Construction and my family for sponsoring me and helping me be hit the stage as a Teen one last time.
