Say Hello to Miss Pennsylvania Covergirl

I truly feel blessed and honored with winning the title of 2014 Miss Pennsylvania Jr. Pre-Teen Cover Girl. During my 2014 year of service, I knew my mission would be to continue to help families in my community. I took part in several 5k runs to support finding a cure for Parkinson's disease. Thanks to my NAM crown and title, our local Meteorologist Dave Murphy asked for my help in starting the 2014 "Moving Day" 5k run and walk in Central Philadelphia. My new friend, Amy Moore, at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia helped me make a donation of art supplies, puzzles and games to the children staying at the hospital. Last but certainly not least, I hosted a pool party to raise $500.00 for new books at my school. I got to see my friends and cool down from the summer heat. What a blast! Thank you to Ms. Sandy and Ms. Nicole for providing me the opportunity to develop my skills in poise, manners, giving speeches and grace. Hugs and Kisses, Hannah Yannelli 2014 Miss P…

Check Out Miss Oklahoma Teen Samantha Martin!

My year as the 2014 Oklahoma Teen has been such a blessing and a gateway to so many things in my life. I had so much fun riding the University of Oklahoma Homecoming parade with my sister queens and getting to donate books and school supplies to the Positive Tomorrow's School which is a program for homeless children. I have also worked to help feed families fighting hunger at my regional food bank. Getting the opportunities of a lifetime to give back to those in my community is so very humbling and exciting to see the difference that I am making. Since competing in my first NAM pageant at the age of six, I have gained an overwhelming amount of confidence, poise and people skills. My transformation from a timid six year old to a strong willed, outgoing leader is exactly what National American Miss is all about. I am so thankful for this chance to be a positive role model in young girls' lives and I owe it all to the NAM system. With Love,  Samantha Beth Martin 2014 Miss Oklahom…
