The 2013 Miss America's Outstanding Teen competition is underway, and MAOTeen is pleased to present JM Best Entertainment as the production team for this year's competition.

 For the ninth consecutive year, JM Best Entertainment, Orlando, Florida, has been named the producer of the 2013 Miss America's Outstanding Teen Pageant. The pageant will be held at the Linda Chapin Theatre at the Orange County Convention Center, in August. JM Best Entertainment produces television and special events all over the country, including the U.S. Dream Academy Gala; the National Cherry Blossom and National Memorial Day parades in Washington, D.C.; the Fourth of July parades in Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia; The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival in Chicago; and Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade, to name a few.

JM Best and his team were recently chosen by the Miss America Organization to produce the Miss America Show Us Your Shoes Parade, which will be returning to Atlantic City on September 14.

John M. Best is a two-time Emmy Award-winning producer for the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade for ABC and The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival for WLS-TV in Chicago. He is in pre-production on Glorioso!—a large-scale Christmas production featuring a cast of more than five thousand performers in Manaus, Brazil. This will be his second year helming the international television spectacle.

John M. Best said, "It is incredible to be back for the ninth (year) producing the pageant. Our team really enjoys working with the Miss America's Outstanding Teen Organization and bringing new and fresh ideas to the pageant. It is a privilege to work with fifty-three incredibly talented and bright young women. Our team has already begun planning new and exciting elements for this year's shows. We all look forward to seeing everyone back in Orlando in August."
