Say "Hello" to Nicole future "Miss Teen San Antonio Contestant"! Nicole, already selected by a strict interview process, but she needs your help!

Nicole is an avid soccer player at her local high school and during the summer she volunteered with community non-profit organization that was teaching a summer long course of pre-adolescents about confidence, self worth, clothing, makeup, and modeling. Nicole loves children and she saw this as an opportunity to learn about modeling and gain skills for herself in a hands on setting while assisting in the teaching of others as a role model. At the end of the summer Nicole got to participate in helping the community center put on a real beauty pageant for the girls.

Nicole is new to San Antonio and Texas and enjoys making new friends, roller derby, Young Life and youth group. Nicole is also a very talented graphic design artist and plans to pursue that in the future as a career choice.

Nicole's parent's see this event as a huge opportunity for Nicole, because over the last year Nicole has grown in so many ways she has overcome challenges that were leading her down an entirely different path and Nicole was to determined to change her destiny and become who Christ has called her to be and someone out there recognized the inner and outer beauty of Nicole and set her up for this by nominating her. This pageant is the perfect opportunity for Nicole to signify herself as the new creations she truly is. What a great opportunity for her!

Nicole's family needs your to partner with them by donating as Nicole's sponsor to send her to competition. This was not a planned event by Nicole's family as they were struck by surprise as Nicole received the invitation to apply only a week ago and several days later received a notification that she was selected to compete. The timing of this event is stressful with the recent move, but thankfully the contestants are required to find sponsors who believe in their ability to succeed in order to fund their position and what great "confidence boost" they believe that will give Nicole as she goes forward competing in the competition. They also believe this will help Nicole build skills she will need for her future that she will be able to use in everyday life.

Nicole is required to come up with $625 in sponsors and anything raised above that will go to purchase the outfits needed for competition and the funds needed to compete nationally should she win at the state level, which we believe she will.

We are really impressed with the set up and layout of this pageant the Pageant Coordinator, Patty believes in teens and sees them no matter where they have been with the ability to succeed. A core part of the competition is personality and a interview with a panel of judges. The coordinator lives in Georgia and works as a juvenile probation officer there for juveniles. It is heartwarming to see someone who truly has and interest and loves young people take on a projects like this by making a difference by redefining beauty pageants as such a high level in the pageant industry.

Attached is her Letter of Acceptance and Press Release sent to Nicole. If you would like to sponsor her publicly FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES PLEASE CALL JENNIFER GILLESPIE AT (425) 346-2952 IMMEDIATELY SO YOU CAN BE RECOGNIZED IN THE PRESS RELEASE!

They may wish to commit to being your sponsor immediately in order to receive the media exposure that can be offered by including their name and information along with the press release. This is a great way to spark their interest in supporting you. We would not wait for the release to be published to look for sponsors, however, we would certainly recommend taking copies of it with you when approaching any future potential sponsors. We would be thrilled if you would pass on a copy to the Training Class Coordinator when you attend the Training Class.

Local Young Lady Competes For The Miss Teen San Antonio Title

Nicole Mcdonald of San Antonio was recently selected to participate in the 2013 Miss Teen San Antonio pageant competition that will take place on Sunday February 17, 2013. Nicole learned of her acceptance into this year's competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local San Antonio area. Nicole submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year's San Antonio Pageant Coordinator.

Nicole will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Nicole will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most important, Nicole will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year's San Antonio judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.

If Nicole were to win the title of Miss Teen San Antonio, she would represent San Antonio and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida. Over $30,000.00 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, Florida.

Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Nicole 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 Nicole to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year's San Antonio Pageant.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Nicole may contact the Miss Teen San Antonio pageant coordinator, at 1-877-403-6678 or Jennifer Gillespie at 425-346-2952.
