We are so proud of Miss Ohio Jr. Teen!

What an amazingly blessed year I have had! I have created unbelievable memories and bonds to last a lifetime. My journey all started last year at the Ohio pageant when I was honored to be crowned, along with my sister queens: Kaylin, Olivia, Megan, Gigi, & Courtney. Of course, I can’t forget the incredible, Sammie, my Cover Girl sister queen! I can’t imagine this year without these talented & beautiful ladies to share it with!

I was able to participate in several appearances and volunteer opportunities. The best part was being able to spread my platform, Buddy Bags, which provides needed items to children taken into foster care!

The highlight of the year had to be my week in Hollywood, California! I was able to meet so many remarkable girls from across the country. Trust me when I say the future of our country is in great hands! I got to tour Los Angeles, take on Disney, & look for my future home in Beverly Hills J The icing on the cake was winning 3rd Runner Up Actress and being announced in the Top 10 for the Jr Teen Queen title!

I want to start by thanking God for this opportunity and all the blessings in my life. Of course, I also want to thank Steve & Kathleen Mayes, and all of the NAM staff for encouraging me and other girls to reach for our dreams, no matter how far they may seem. Mom, Dad, & Kaleb I could never be where I am without your constant support and love. Papa, you are officially the greatest escort to cross the NAM national stage! To the rest of my friends and family, thank you for always sending uplifting thoughts and comments and believing in me every step of the way.

Finally to the contestants, remember to have fun, keep reaching for your goals, and work to make the lives of others around you better. Always remember, “How you make others feel about themselves, says a lot about you”.

Signing off for the final time, and quoting the great Winnie the Pooh, “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard”! I am your 2016 Miss Ohio Jr Teen...Kylee Long
