Candace Abel of Loxahatchee was recently selected to participate in the 2012 Miss Pre-Teen West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale pageant competition that will take place Saturday, Oct. 27.
Abel learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced its selections after interviewing in the West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale area. Abel submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale pageant coordinator.
Abel will be vying for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. She will compete in the Miss Pre-Teen division, one of four divisions that will feature young ladies from 7 to 19 competing in modeling routines, including casual wear and formal wear.
Most important, Abel will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale judging panel. Personality is the No. 1 aspect that each contestant is judged by during all phases of competition.
If Abel were to win the title of Miss Pre-Teen West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale, she would represent the region at the national competition that will take place in Orlando. More than $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the national competition, while each winner enjoys this expense-paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.
Community businesses, organizations and private individuals will assist Abel in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor to her.
Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals and financial support, which will allow Abel to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year’s pageant.
Any business, organization or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Abel may contact the Miss Pre-Teen West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale pageant coordinator at (877) 403-6678.
