Two Dayton-area girls have earned the right to compete in the 2014 National American Miss pageant, which will be held at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., during Thanksgiving week this year.
Kennedy Chase, 14, of Bellbrook and Jade Capri Manley, 11, of Centerville won the top crown in their respective age groups at the National American Miss — Ohio pageant held at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus on July 19-21. Both girls received their crowns, sash and $1,000 cash award plus $350 for airfare.
“I had so many emotions; I was really excited because this is my eighth year to compete,” said Chase, who was named NAM Ohio Junior Teen. “Knowing that I won being myself was an amazing feeling. My parents were so proud, I think my mom was crying harder that I was.”
Her parents are Mark and Annette Chase, who were there at the pageant with other family members and friends. Chase is a freshman at Stivers School for the Arts where she studies dance and theater. She is also a member of one of the Miami Valley Dance Center’s competitive teams. She recently appeared in a short video for PROKids Friends of Children Society in Hamilton.
“I met Kennedy a couple of years ago when Jade was competing. She was so sweet towards my daughter and was such a good example and role model, even outside of the pageant,” said Jade’s mother, Alisha Manley. “She’s one of the most gracious young ladies that I have ever met in my life.”
“I would love to be a child psychologist and incorporating my passion, dance, would be something really different, like dance therapy,” said Chase, who has won six other pageant titles. “I love helping others; especially little kids; I love working with children.”
One of the ways Chase helps kids is through the charity she began at Stivers called Change for a Cause that raises money for inner-city kids for magnet school fees and private lessons in music or art.
Manley won the NAM Ohio Pre-Teen crown. She volunteers with Daybreak, and has earned two other pageant titles. She attends the sixth grade at Watts Middle School in Centerville. Manley was cast as the Godfather in “Twinderella” at Town Hall Theatre in August. She was also the featured lead in a Mead Trapper Keeper commercial.
“I’m positive, I love to sing, but most of all I love to make people laugh,” said Manley, who tells jokes during her pageant interviews. “I would like to be a stand-up comic, singer or actor, that would be cool. But I also would like to be a kindergarten teacher. I like helping kids.”
The National American Miss pageants stress inner beauty, poise and presentation. Emphasis is placed on the importance of gaining self-confidence, learning new skills, having a good attitude and achieving personal goals. The girls have a one-one interview with about six judges, and model formalwear.

Featuring Miss New York Covergirl!

I am Catherine Olsen, your Miss New York Princess Cover Girl 2013.
The day that I was crowned was one of the best days of my life. This year has been amazing!
I have gotten to do so many things and meet so many important people.
The weekend after being crowned, I went to help out at the NJ State pageant where I met many wonderful sister queens!
When I got home, one of the first people I met was NY Assemblyman Robert Sweeney and I helped kick off the fall festival in Tanner Park where I met Congressman Martinez and then I got to have some fun with my friends.
One of the best things from this past year was being able to ride a float in the NYC Veteran’s Day Parade with my sister queens. We even ended up on live TV and I met Miss New York Amanda Mason.
I have raised funds for the March of Dimes, JDRF and the Lupus foundation. I got to be team captain for our team Queens to the Rescue. We raised $800. We even got to wear capes like real super heroes made by my Sister Queen Emily.
I donated food to kindness for kitties and got involved with a group called Kids Adopt A Shelter. They help animals in need which is very important to me. At our event in June, we were able to get 20 animals adopted.
There is a list of people to thank but I would like to say thank you to my family and friends first. Your love and support on this journey means the world to me. I would especially like to thank my Mom for always believing in me and taking me everywhere I need to go.
I would also like to thank, Mr. and Mrs. Mayes and the whole NAM staff for giving me this great opportunity. I have grown and experienced so much in the past year.
To all the contestants, always remember that winning the crown is not the important part. It is what you do with it after that makes all the difference.
To my successor, I hope you have an awesome year!
For the last time, I am your Miss New York Princess Cover Girl 2013,
