Next summer, White Haven resident Courtney Dornheim, who is a senior at Agora Cyber Charter School, will compete for the National title of USA National Teen, as well as thousands of dollars in college scholarships, prizes and full-ride scholarships to Troy University in Alabama.
Along with outstanding young women from across the United States, Courtney, who is the reigning Pennsylvania Teen, will travel to the Boca Resort & Beach Club from July 11-16, 2016 for the highly anticipated USA National Miss Scholarship Pageant. Representing the state, Courtney will compete in evening gown, interview and a runway fashion show event in order to claim the honor of being crowned the national winner.
Courtney was crowned USA National Miss Pennsylvania Teen on October 11th in Pittsburgh. She is a member of the National Honor Society and a charitable advocate. Courtney’s involvements include being the Administrative Director of the Miss Military Star charity pageant which supports the Wounded Warrior Project as well as Assistant Director of the T. L. C. Pageant (Tiaras Loving Children) which is a pageant open to children with special needs.
USA National Miss provides young women ages 4 to 25 with the opportunity to combine their love of pageantry with other optional elements to custom design their pageant experience –whether their focus is on fashion and modeling, or talent, education, community service, and mentorship. Awarding six prestigious national titles, USA National Miss will award over $300,000.00 in cash scholarships, college scholarships and prizes during their 2016 national pageant. Delegates can also earn titles, crowns and prizes in optional competitions in areas of interest to them including academics, community service and talent.
“USA National Miss combines all the beauty and excitement of pageantry with the glamour and energy of a runway fashion show –while recognizing the personal achievement, community involvement and academic excellence of young women all across the USA,” said USA National Miss Executive Director Jackie Watson.
