It's a Top Five Finish for The 2010 Natinal American Miss Texas PreTeen

2010 Miss North Texas Pre-Teen Queen

     Oh My Gosh!  I can’t believe that my year as the 2010 Miss Texas Pre-Teen has come to an end.  This has been my best pageant year ever!!!  Not only did I place top five in the Casual Wear optional contest at the National Pageant, but I was also named 4th runner-up to National title.  Hollywood, California was so much fun! I was able to hang out with my family and sister queens at Disneyland, during the Hollywood Tour, and at the beach.

     During my reign, my community service involved serving lunch to residents at a nursing home, serving dinner to parents of severely ill children at a local Ronald McDonald house, and continuing my community service platform for “Meals On Wheels.”  I was also a spokesperson to recruit more volunteers for this organization by appearing live with a local radio station d.j. for 94.5 K-Soul.  But my favorite community involvement was passing out backpacks stuffed with school supplies during a “Back-to-School” fair with my big sister queen Liz Pospisil the “2010 Miss Texas Jr. Pre-Teen Queen.”  I was also able to travel to the South Texas and Oklahoma pageant with my little sister queens Addie Thompson and Jaci Walker.  You guys made traveling so much fun!

     Before I say goodbye, I want to thank Mr. and Mrs. Mayes for the “BEST” pageant organization for young girls.  Thank you to Mrs. LaKishia Edwards, Ms. Tiffany Saylor, Mrs. Tiffany Hague, Mrs. Palmgren, Ms. Blackwell, and everyone at NAM for their kind, and loving spirits.  To Ms. Joy Suprano, the BEST emcee ever! To Ms. Suzie; Thank you for making me the elegant, young lady that I am today. To Ms. Ravayna and David; the BEST pageant friends ever! To Ms. Margaret Allings; the BEST fashion designer in the USA! To Aunt Tangie; the BEST hairstylist in Texas.  To my Grandma, Uncle Ren, and Aunt Cat for helping me to get to Nationals.  To all of my family and friends who helped make this journey a great memory.  To the BEST parents in the universe.  I LOVE YOU so very much! And to my big 3 brothers, the BEST cheerleaders in the world.  And to my successor, may this be your BEST pageant year ever!

Dear Contestants,

What an amazing year this has been representing the Lone Star State. 

I have had so many opportunities to serve in my community.  I volunteered for the North Texas Buddy Walk to help raise money for research and education for children with Down’s syndrome.  I also attended to National Health and Safety Fair to promote health and safety in communities. I appeared in many local parades and I even got to participate in the Texas State Fair.  I also enjoyed my trip to Nationals in sunny California.  What a magical day at Disneyland I had with my sister queens and family. 

As my reign comes to an end, I want to thank National American Miss for providing this opportunity.  I have had the time of my life and met so many new friends.  Thank you to my family for taking this journey with me.  Finally, I want the thanks Jesus for everything in my life…through Him all things are possible.

Your 2010-2011 National American Miss Texas Princess,

Addie Thompson
