Amanda Martinez Von Wachter of Royal Palm Beach was recently selected to participate in the 2016 Miss Teen pageant competition that will take place on Sunday, Feb. 14.
Amanda learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced its selections following interviewing in the local West Palm Beach area. Amanda submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s West Palm Beach pageant coordinator.
Amanda will be competing for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. She will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7 through 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual and formal wear. Most importantly, she will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s judging panel. Personality is the top aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.
If Amanda were to win the title of Miss Teen, she would represent West Palm Beach and the surrounding communities 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 an expense-paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando.
