Are you between the ages of 12 & 17 and interested in becoming Miss New Mexico's Outstanding Teen?
Teen Contestants can advance to the state pageant as an at large contestant without competing on the local level.
The Miss New Mexico Outstanding Teen Pageant is to provide an opportunity and encouragement for young teenage girls to pursue their talents, become positive role models to her peers, to serve their community by becoming involved in community service and to be young women of the highest character and integrity. The contestants will in engage in a formal interview which assists in developing communication skills and confidence. The young ladies will compete in an active wear competition which will focus on their physical fitness. Their poise and elegance will be demonstrated in the evening wear competition and their talents will be represented in a talent competition.
Girls may enter a local competition in their area so that they become familiar with the MAOT System. However, it is not required to win a local crown in order to participate at the State Pageant. Teens may enter and come directly to the State pageant. Teens do have an entry fee at the state competition.
