Mckenna Wickers of Wellington was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Jr. Pre-Teen West Palm Beach pageant competition that will take place Sunday, Dec. 28. Wickers learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced its selections following interviews in the West Palm Beach area by pageant coordinators.
Wickers will compete for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. The pageant has four divisions that will have young ladies ages 7 to 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most importantly, Wickers will display her personality and interviewing skills.
If Wickers wins, she will represent West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities at a national competition in Orlando, where more than $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented and each winner enjoys an expenses-paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.
Community businesses, organizations and private individuals will assist Wickers in participating in this year’s competition by becoming her official sponsors. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals and financial support, which will allow Wickers to become a confident and well-prepared contestant.
Any business, organization or individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Wickers should contact the Miss Jr. Pre-Teen West Palm Beach pageant coordinator at (877) 403-6678.
