May 17th and 18th I had attended the 16th annual Miss & Miss Teen NB International, 6th annual Miss and Miss Teen NS International, the 5th annual Miss & Miss Teen PEI International, and the 3rd annual Miss & Miss Teen Maritime International!
On the 17th it was the preliminary night of the pageant where the miss and miss teen delegates did their fashion, evening wear, talent and the miss delegates did their swimwear. All of the ladies did an amazing job! I also got to meet the 2014 delegates after the prelims and it was cool to see where each and every one of them was from! May 18th was pageant day and everyone was up early to get their hair and make-up done, and to go to their interviews with the judges! It was a busy morning but again, the girls did amazing with their interviews! I got to spend my morning with the amazing Marc Gagnon who is the President of the Miss and Miss Teen Maritime pageant putting the script together! 🙂 I was then off to Sub Delight which is one of the sponsors for the pageant to get the girls their lunch! They were delicious and we couldn’t have thanked them enough for preparing subs for all of the girls!
It was 2pm and we were all of to the Shediac Multipurpose Theatre to where the pageant was going to be held that night! The girls did rehearsals all afternoon and got taught their evening gown walk and practiced their opening number dance. They did the song Mmm Yeah by Austin Mahone and Pitbull by choreographer Karine Aube from DNA Dance!
You can never forget about the amazing hosts that take time out of their day to make this all happen! Allon McCall and Shyann Caissie were this year’s hosts! Allon is the founder and owner of the We Music Productions! Allon is a drummer, songwriter, producer and announcer. Shyann had competed in the Miss and Miss Teen New Brunswick Int’l pageant when she was only 13 years old being crowned the new Miss Teen New Brunswick International in 2010! Shyann knew that her pageant career wasn’t over and had represented her province at the Miss Teen Canada World in July, 2013! Allon and Shyann were amazing hosts and connected with the crowd very well and had fun with hosting the pageant!
After the hosts being introduced the delegates did their second number which was their Fashion wear; the delegates got a budget and had 15 minutes to pick out an outfit at Guy’s Frenchy’s located in Shediac and they were all amazing outfits! It was a neat thing to see as it was something different and something I have never saw before! The delegates then got their awards for talent, evening wear, swimwear, photogenic, and scholastic and then put their evening gowns on and did their walks.
After the intermission the reigning title holders of 2013 did their final walks, and gave their final speech. Then the current reigning title holder of Miss Teenage Canada: Jillian Martin gave a speech to the crowd. Following her speech Joline Boudreau, Miss Maritime 2013 Int’l was announced as a delegate for the Miss World Canada in 2015, following Brianna Keith to be officially crowned as Miss Teenage New Brunswick 2014, and I to be officially crowned Miss Teenage Prince Edward Island 2014
It was then time for the delegates to come back onto the stage where the new provincial, and maritime holders would be crowned. The girls did all did a tremendous job, and were all winners in my eyes! After all the girls being crowned for the miss teen and miss category, there was an after reception where the ladies were able to take pictures with their family memebers, as well as other girls who were in the pageant!
Once again I would like to give Marc Gagnon a huge thank you! Without him I don’t know what I would do without his support! He’s an amazing man and always has you laughing!
No matter what the outcome is in any pageant you compete in, you’re all winners ! 🙂
