Carmel Valley youth competes for 2014 Miss Teen San Diego title

Carmel Valley resident Pari Vijay was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen San Diego pageant competition that will take place on Sunday, March 2. Pari learned of her acceptance into this year’s competition when the pageant announced its selections following interviews in the San Diego area. Pari submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year’s San Diego pageant coordinator.

Pari will be competing for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Pari will compete in the Miss Teen division, one of four divisions that will have young ladies, ages 7 - 19, competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most importantly, Pari will display her personality and speaking skills while being interviewed by this year’s San Diego judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.

If Pari were to win the title of Miss Teen San Diego, she would represent San Diego and the surrounding communities at the national competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida. More than $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the national competition.

Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Pari in participating in this year’s competition by becoming an official sponsor for her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support needed to compete.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Pari may contact the Miss Teen San Diego pageant coordinator at 1-877-403-6678.
