Day 6 was rehearsing all morning and then hair and makeup started happening to get us ready for our preliminary night! Preliminary is where we are all are judged on our swimwear and our evening gown. The top 20 that compete in finals on Saturday night are chosen out of 55 girls competing. We will be finding out who has made the top 20 Saturday night right after the opening number at the start of the show. Wish me luck into making it into the top 20!!! Pictures of my hair and makeup from preliminaries to come later>
Day 5 I had rehearsals almost all day in heels and then we all went to Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament. That is an amazing show, with people on horseback, sword firing and knights in shining armor. Each time the knights won one of the competitions they received a red carnation to throw out to someone sitting in their colour section, our colour was red and the red knight received 3 of these flowers to throw and threw it at me so I got to received a red flower from a knight in shinning armor. Isn’t that what every little girls dream is? I think so.
Day 4 we were on Global Toronto and then they put us on Global National! I got to be on 3 live stream TV shows in 2 days. This trip is giving me so many wonderful experiences that I would have never gotten if I hadn’t come to the Miss Teenage Canada Nationals in Toronto. After Global news we went to the CN Tower, that was so high up but it was a beautiful view of the entire city. I come from a small town and the highest building we have is maybe 4 floors, the CN Tower is way higher up.
Day 3 I was on Breakfast TV!! OMG we were all on live TV. That was an exciting and nerve-racking experience. The girls who got to answer some questions did a great job with them though and we’re super confident with their answers. Breakfast TV was the first time i have ever been on TV and what an awesome experience that was.
Day 2 first i had hair and makeup that was done by motives cosmetics, then I had my video interview where I had to answer 3 questions and say who I am, where I’m from and how old I am. The next activity I had to do was my office Miss Teenage Canada Nationals photo shoot. Wow that was so much fun getting to have a shoot done like that, I haven’t seen or received my photos yet but when I do, I will post them on here. Last I had the interview with 3 of the judges, that was what I was most nervous for the entire day but in the end it seemed to be the easiest part of the whole day. The judges are such nice people and they are all so kind and welcoming it just made it so much more comfortable to talk to them and answer the questions they had for me.
We have done so much this week. Day 1 was the welcome party where I got to meet all the amazing girls that I get to spend the next week with. We got to meet some of our sponsors, the Golden Glamour Goddesses, Hi-Tec Canada, Wrights Mobile Spas, and Motives Cosmetics.

I had always wanted to be in pageants since I was little girl but didn’t know much about them. I finally decided to do some research for my grade 12 English position paper. Through research a found that there was actually quite a few pageants in Canada. I discovered that the Miss Teenage Canada Pageant was the largest and most acceptable pageant for me; I decided to enter the Miss Teenage Canada pageant because of all the amazing feed back from other girls from previous years. These woman’s stories how there is so many more places to go onto after provincials and nationals, that you get to meet wonderful people and make connections that last a lifetime. I found the links to that Miss Teenage Canada pageant here (www.missteenagecanda.com) formally known as Miss Teen Canada-World (www.missteenagecanda.com) through researching my paper. I then applied for the Miss Teenage Canada pageant for the 2014 year. (http://www.missteenagecanada.com/become-mtcw/apply-now) I found the Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/MissTeenageCanada) page and found much more amazing information about Miss Teenage Canada where, there are many more beautiful photographs of the girls from previous years.
The Miss Teen Canada Pageant was a loved event that my parents still remember. In 1972 it was named Miss Teen Canada but due to financial concerns Miss Teen Canada was disbanded in the late 1990s. This grand event started in 1969 and was televised on CTV. Miss Teen Canada pageants was sponsored by A&W Drive-Ins where Cleo Productions, who for many years owned the event. Pageants haven’t been as popular in Canada over the years but is the largest Teen Pageant out there (http://missteenagecanada.com/about-mtcw/company-profile) in Canada and is now owned by MTC-W Inc. Produced by Michelle Weswaldi (http://missteenagecanada.com/about-mtcw/meet-the-team) when she took over in 2008.
