Hannah Ledford, an EBCI tribal member from the Birdtown Community, was recently selected to participate in the 2015 Miss Teen pageant competition that will take place on Sunday, Nov. 15. Ledford learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local Asheville area. She took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s Asheville Pageant Coordinator.
Ledford, daughter of Cynthia Ledford, will be competing for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. She will be competing in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7-19 competing in modeling routines, which include Casual Wear and Formal Wear. Most importantly, Hannah will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year’s judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.
If she were to win the title of Miss Teen, Ledford would represent Asheville and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida. Over $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the National Competition while each winner enjoys this expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando, Fla.
