Woodbury student First Runner Up in teen pageant

Woodbury student First Runner Up in teen pageantWhat can you get for $3.39 these days? For Woodbury resident, Jahreya Evans it meant winning first-runner-up honors in the Miss Photogenic competition at the Nationals’ 2010 Miss Jr. Teen Minneapolis/ St. Paul pageant. A week before the July 18th competition at Washburn High School in Minneapolis, Jahreya snapped a picture of herself with her digital camera while seated in her parent’s car. After convincing them she had created a winning photograph, Miss Evans entered the self-portrait into the contest and nearly won the whole thing gaining the coveted spot as the First Runner -Up in that category. Miss Evans says the honor will help in forwarding her desire to be a model in print media.

Miss Evans was originally accepted for the competition based on the details contained in her application and her mastery of an interview session that was conducted by this year’s Minneapolis/ Saint Paul Pageant Coordinator.
