MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. – Mount Vernon teenager Yamilex Bueno will represent the city as she competes in the 2013 Miss Teen New York pageant competition April 14.
Bueno had to submit an application and go through a rigorous interview process with this year’s pageant coordinator in the city. She will be competing against dozens of pageant hopefuls for thousands of dollars in prizes and gifts.
The teen division is one of four divisions and will feature girls ages 7 through 19. They will compete in modeling routines wearing casual and formal evening wear. Most important, contestants will also display their personality and verbal skills while being interviewed by the New York City judging panel.
If Bueno wins the Miss Teen New York City Crown, she would represent the area at the National Competition in Orlando, Fla., where she would compete for $30,000 in prizes.
