What an Awesome Year for Miss Pennsylvania Jr PreTeen!

Hi Everyone,

WOW! Time flies when you’re having fun! I can’t believe it has been a year already since I was crowned your 2012 National American Miss Junior Pre-Teen, for the great state of Pennsylvania. It was such an honor to be crowned during NAM’s 10 year anniversary! I didn’t waste one moment! I have had such an amazing year, one I will remember and cherish forever.
I have been one busy queen. I have volunteered, made appearances at many community activities and events, attended fairs, been in parades, attended local pageants, was invited to a movie premier, meet many Pennsylvania politicians, received a citation from state Senator Randy Vulakovich for my accomplishments at NAM, and even meet Governor Corbitt, and got to help give him and his wife a personal tour of the Big Butler Fair grounds.
National’s was a blast! I met girls from all over the country and made so many new friends. I went to Disneyland and got to tour the streets of Hollywood!
To the contestants, my advice to you is, have fun, be yourself, and smile big! You will learn so much this weekend, so take it all in. Even though only one girl can walk away with the crown, you are all winners already just by making it to the state level and trying something new. You are gaining lifelong skills that can help you reach your goals and dreams. Most importantly make new friends!
To my successor, Congratulations! Fasten your seatbelt and hold on tight. You are in for an amazing ride.
Sandy, Nicole, and the NAM staff, I can’t thank you enough for being the best state directors and mentors. To my sister queens, I love you all so much, and wish you all the best, I will miss you!
To Mom, Dad, my brothers and sister, thank you for being my biggest cheerleaders and believing in me.
Good Luck to everyone this weekend, and I can’t wait to meet you all. We are going to have a blast!

Love and Hugs,

Meet Andora McConnell!

I am your 2012 Miss Pennsylvania Pre-TeenSM, Andora McConnell. Are you all excited for this coming weekend? I know, I am really excited to see you all! I got to go to CA Thanksgiving week and had a blast seeing all my sister queens and making new friends. During this past year, I visited the New Jersey and North Texas pageants. It was super fun! I made lots of friends and did numerous things during my reign this past year. I was in 2 of the local parades. I volunteered at Relay for Life, Ludwig's Corner Horse Show and helped out with fundraising for a little boy, Jason Heckman. He was a 4 year old with Neuroblastoma. Volunteering 3 days a week at Little Learners Preschool during the whole school year was cool because I got to help with the little kids. I donated books, food, water, clothes, medicine and other necessities to New Jersey and New York for Hurricane Sandy victims. I even walked in a Runway show with Maddie and Chloe from Dance Moms, that benefited the Walk out against Bullying. 

Just remember have fun, be yourself and make as many friends as you can.

Being the Miss New York Junior Pre- TeenSM has been one of the greatest times of my life. I am thankful for all the new friends I have gained. At Nationals I placed 12th.  It was a blast I was there with all my sister Queens and my best friend Miss New Jersey one day planning to start a company Joli Ava Jolie . This past year I have been involved in so many different charities. I loved helping and being a role model to others.  I am glad to be part of this Namily   

I want to thank the NAM organization Mr. and Mrs Hayes, your faith in choosing me has carved a special place in my life, and you will always be remembered, A Special Thank you to the  Judges and Nam Staff for giving me this opportunity for seeing true potential in me  and that I was so valued here.

Even though I am an only child I now have my sister queens which means to me more than anything they are my bond for life. Kira my oldest sister Queen asked me to be her princess in the Miss America pageant. I love being their little sister.  Thank you for being there.

A Year in the Life of Miss Pennsylvania Teen 2012!

Dear Miss Pennsylvania TeenSM Contestants,
I hope you are as excited for this year’s state pageant as I am! This year has been one of the most incredible years of my life thanks to National American Miss. My experience with NAM started 4 years ago as a Junior Teen. After returning to my state pageant year after year, and practicing to improve, my prayers were finally answered as I was crowned your 2012 Miss Pennsylvania TeenSM
I had so many great opportunities this year. After years of competing at Nationals, I was finally able to represent the great state of Pennsylvania as a Teen Queen. I was fortunate to have placed in the top 10 in the country and win 4 national titles including Actress, Talent, Spokesmodel, and Top Model.
I am so grateful to NAM for encouraging me to dream big and develop my confidence. I have grown tremendously, had the greatest experiences, and made the best of friends, all because of this organization. As you prepare for this year’s state pageant, I ask that you focus on being the best YOU that you can be. You all are already winners because you are state finalists in the best pageant system for young girls in the country! Please know that you are in my prayers and that you are in for an exciting, unforgettable time! I am looking forward to seeing you at this year’s state pageant.
God Bless,
Melessie Clark
