About a month ago, Teens in Training Camp teamed up with thePageantGuy.com and launched a free registration contest to award one lucky teen entry into this summer’s Teens in Training Camp. The contestants had to submit a photo and brief statement describing why they thought they should win the contest, which were then both posted on thePageantGuy.com’s Facebook page. For a couple weeks, the public voted for their favorite contestant, which determined our Top 10 Finalists. Now, we have 10 extremely beautiful and talented teens who need your help to win the spot at TNT Camp. You can help them win the top spot by voting for them on Facebook until April 30th, 2011. All you have to do to vote is go to thePageantGuy.com’s Facebook page and “Like” your favorite contestant’s photo in the Teens in Training Camp Contest album. You can also check out some awesome videos of MAOTeen Lacey Russ, the 2011 Outstanding Teen Contestants, and the National Princesses at Miss America on thePageantGuy.com’s page and website. Trust me, you want to check it out!
Now, let’s talk prizes. The girl who finishes with the most votes wins free registration for Teens in Training Camp, but she won’t be the only one who walks away with a prize. Each Top 10 Finalist will receive a $25 gift certificate toward a cocktail dress or evening gown and free matching earrings from our contest sponsor, La Casa Hermosa. I am so excited about this fabulous prize for our Top 10 and am very grateful to La Casa Hermosa for their support and generosity. Not only is La Casa Hermosa our Free Registration Contest sponsor, but they are also going to be joining us for Camp this summer. Fashion stylist Robin Fleming and the La Casa Hermosa styling team will be teaching workshops and hosting events that will give participants the opportunity to learn style tips and techniques from the best in the business!
So as you can see, we’ve been busy at Teens in Training Camp and I hope it gets you excited for this summer. However, I haven’t forgotten this post’s tip for success that, in fact, comes from our very own Robin Fleming. This tip will not only give you advice on how to be your own fashionista, but it will also give you another ingredient to add to your recipe for success. So here it is.
Tip #2: Use style savvy fashionistas as personal inspiration, rather than copy exactly what someone else may be wearing. The biggest mistake a young woman can make in fashion today is copy the previous 'winner' or a big-name celebrity, or in fact, copy anyone. To be a copy is to be a poor version of an original. To be an original, is to be true to your inner self.
Thanks for reading and don’t forget to vote for your favorite contestant! Stay tuned for my next post!
