A wonderful year comes to a close for The 2010 National American Miss Ohio Jr Teen Kacey Gallup!

It’s hard to believe that one year ago I was standing on this very stage waiting to hear my name called as the 2010 Miss Ohio Junior Teen. I am still in disbelief. To add the excitement I also won casual wear my very first year of doing it! But the best part of all was winning miss congeniality- what an honor that was! My reign was off to a quick start as I through out the first pitch for the Toledo Mud Hens. I also held my own charity event for our local food bank and was able to donate over one thousand dollars to help feed the hungry. I spent all of my year volunteering at the Children’s Hospital and with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization. I met so many young children who have made me realize what the most important things in life are. Light the Night was an amazing event that all of my sister queens and I were able to attend. Next was Nationals! I had a blast at Disneyworld and the Hollywood Tour is something I will never forget. I was so excited that I made the top 10 and will never forget all the memories and friendships I made.
My national American miss experience has been so rewarding. After 5 years of competing, I discovered that there is no instant success. It takes patience and perseverance. It was those years of trying that made me stronger and more determined.
To all of my sister queens- you all are the most extraordinary young ladies I have ever met; I cannot imagine my year without each one of you.
Mr. and Mrs. Mayes- thank you for being such wonderful directors and creating a pageant system where girls can truly be themselves.
All of the NAM staff- I had a blast with each one of you! Especially working the open calls. Thank you for always keeping things interesting and fun.
Mom and Dad- none of this would have been possible without your support. Thank you for always believing in me and making my biggest dream become a reality. I will always be your little girl.
Will- thank you for always keeping me calm and making me laugh when I would get stressed. Your stunning looks make everyone turn their heads and stare. I envy your talent and strive to be more like you. I know you’re the favorite child but that’s okay with me. You are the best big brother a girl could ask for.
Most importantly I would like to give thanks to God. Without him I would not be the young lady I am today. He has blessed my family with so much.       
To my successor- get ready! Use your year to inspire others grow as a queen and continue writing your own life story. All eyes are now on you.
For the last time I’m proud to say, I am your reigning 2010 National American Miss Ohio Junior Teen Kacey Gallup.
