"Tag A Queen"

CONGRATULATIONS on your decision to apply for a Participation Scholarship to the Miss American Teen International Pageant! This is an opportunity to represent your state or country of heritage in this annual celebration of girls and young women across the Americas.

So, tell us all about yourself -- and don't be humble, this opportunity is worth the chance to receive a scholarship to attend Internationals.

(3) Participate in a friendly interview to discuss your application, if requested.
