De'lacy Lewis of Geismar and daughter of Kenneth and Shonda Lewis was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen Baton Rouge/Lafayette pageant competition that will take place on Sunday March 23. She learned of her acceptance into this year's competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local Baton Rouge/Lafayette area. Lewis submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year's Baton Rouge/Lafayette Pageant Coordinator.

Lewis will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. She will be competing in the Miss Teen ivision, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most important, she will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year's Baton Rouge/Lafayette judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.

If Lewis were to win the title of Miss Teen Baton Rouge/Lafayette, she would represent Baton Rouge/Lafayette and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida. Over $30,000.00 in prizes and awards will be presented at the National Competition while each winner enjoys this expense paid trip of five nights and six days in Orlando, Florida. Included in these prizes will be cash scholarships and bonds that will total over $20,000.00

Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Lewis in participating in this year's competition by becoming an official sponsor to her. Through sponsorship, each contestant receives all the necessary training, rehearsals, and financial support which will allow her to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year's Baton Rouge/Lafayette Pageant.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to De'lacy Lewis may contact the Miss Teen Baton Rouge/Lafayette pageant coordinator, at 1-877-403-6678.
