Terrace resident Sara Pipe has been selected for the BC provincial pageant for Miss Teenage Canada.
If Pipe wins the provincial pageant in January, she will move on to the national Miss Teen Canada pageant in summer 2015.
She was chosen from an online interview from the more than 100 provincial applicants.
“I entered the Miss Teen Canada Pageant for a great experience to gain confidence, to improve my public speaking skills and to meet new people,” said Pipe.
“Pageantry gives you a window of opportunities in modeling, acting, performing and much more.”
Pageant scoring has several levels, each of which represents a percentage of the total score: personality, communication skills, stage presence, charm, academics, community commitment, beauty, fitness and confidence.
“Another side benefit for me entering this contest is to put Terrace on the map,” said Pipe.
“We are a small but growing community and if my participating in this contest helps us to be better known then that would be great.”
Pipe’s not the first one from here to be in the Miss Teen Canada provincial pageant: in 2011, was Shantelle MacLean and 2009 saw Jessica Catorc make it in.
