Shelburne’s Caroline Jones, 16, will be among 53 of the country’s most talented, bright, and beautiful young women, ages 13 to 17, in Orlando, Fla. to compete in the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen (MAOTeen) competition, which is the “little sister” to Miss America. The competition will take place Aug. 14-18 at the Linda Chapin Theater inside the Orange County Convention Center.
Promoting scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living, and community involvement for America’s teens, the MAOTeen contestants are judged on personal interview, talent, eveningwear, lifestyle & fitness in active wear, and on-stage question.
Jones, a junior at Champlain Valley Union High School, is an honor student and recipient of the Best Novice Debater award. She was a World Leadership Congress ambassador and the keynote speaker for last year’s World Youth Peace Summit. Jones will be performing theatrical stage combat for the talent portion of the MAOTeen competition.
