Local Young Lady Competes for the Miss Teen San Bernardino/Pasadena Title

Miss Brandy Bulter

Miss Brandy Bulter

SAN BERNARDINO, CA- Brandy Butler of San Bernardino was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen San Bernardino/Pasadena pageant competition that will take place on Sunday March 30, 2014.  Brandy learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local San Bernardino/Pasadena area.  Brandy submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s San Bernardino/Pasadena Pageant Coordinator.

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

If Ms. Butler were to win the title of Miss Teen San Bernardino/Pasadena, she would represent San Bernardino/Pasadena 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 her 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 Brandy to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year’s San Bernardino/Pasadena Pageant.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Brandy Butler may contact the Miss Teen San Bernardino/Pasadena Pageant Coordinator at (877) 403-6678.
