A pair of Kent girls – 15-year-old Kaylee Lynn Pederson and 8-year-old Angela Becerra (pictured below) – recently were selected to participate in next month’s Seattle Pageant.

The girls qualified for the pageant following an application and interview process.

Pederson will compete for the Miss Teen Seattle title June 17 at the Rialto Theatre in Tacoma. Pederson, daughter of Marty and Tracy Pederson, is a freshman at Kent-Meridian High School.

Becerra will vie for the Miss Junior Preteen Seattle crown.

Contestants will be judged in an onstage interview, as well as casual and formal wear segments. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during different phases of competition.

Girls will compete for prize money and specialty gifts. Young ladies ages 7-19 compete in four different divisions.

Seattle winners will advance to the national competition in Orlando, Fla., where more than $30,000 in prizes and awards will be up for grabs.

Through sponsorship, each contestant receives the necessary training, rehearsals and financial support. Any business, organization or private individual who may be interested in sponsoring Pederson or Becerra, may contact the Seattle pageant coordinator at 1-800-279-0976.

Sponsors can email Pederson directly at pistlepete@comcast.net or Becerra at francinebecerra@me.com.
