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.
Miss Evans, who is a freshman at East Ridge High School in Woodbury this fall, is a standout student. She is a two year member of Lake Middle School’s Leadership Council, was a member of the school’s track team and is planning a Business Management career post college. Miss Evans is also an active member of Uniteens, a youth organization sponsored by her church at Unity East in Woodbury.

She competed against nearly 190 students in the Miss Jr. Teen division, one of four with young ladies between the ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines which include casual and formal wear.
