Meet Miss Ohio Jr. Pre-Teen!

Tori Harrison-Rawn Miss Ohio Jr. Pre-Teen
It all started with a letter, an open call and free photo shoot.My parents and I thought, why not?Off we went and there we began our National American Miss journey.NAM and pageants were a brand new experience for us.We liked the idea of “Building Today’s Girl for Tomorrow’s Leaders”.All of my experiences over the past year have helped to build my confidence, build character and work toward being a better person. During my reign over the past year, I have been able to work with my church helping to provide for those in need.With my sister queens, we supported fundraising for childhood diabetes, met other queens around Ohio and met many of you working the open calls and training sessions. I have to say, I loved dress shopping, the training sessions, performing on stage and practicing interview questions.Most of all I cherished meeting new people and making so many new friends.From the very first pajama party, to the last photo shoot I was able to s…

Dear Contestants, National American Miss is an organization that strives to build confidence in young ladies.NAM has a mission to encourage us to be leaders now and in the future and to equip us with valuable life skills.I have been involved with NAM since the age of 4 and it has definitely impacted my life. This has been a year of amazing memories and accomplishments.After being crowned your Ohio Jr. Teen, I began my reign by participating in the Ohio State Fair and volunteering with my sister queens at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation walk.I also began my preparation for the National Pageant in California.I was blessed that week to bring home the National title of Most Promising Model and Photogenic.I was even more honored and excited when I was chosen to represent the nation as the new National American Miss Jr. Teen!!I have traveled across the US, spent a week in Nicaragua on a mission trip, had a blast at the national photo shoot, and meet so many new and wonderful people…

It was an amazing moment that I will never forget. As soon as I got back home I rode in the Fourth of July parades, made local appearances as a state queen, and helped with judging and crowning at a pageant at my county fair. I also attended the Ohio State Fair with my Sister Queens. We had a blast riding in the parade, eating junk food, and spending the day together. During my reign I was able to meet “Brutus” the Buckeye and spend the day with the Ohio State Cheerleaders. This was an awesome experience, because I hope to one day cheer at the Ohio State University. I jumped right into volunteering for local organizations that hold a special place in my heart.My best friend’s mom was diagnose…
