Allie” Elizabeth Campbell of Ozark is the new Miss Pre-Teen International.
The twelve-year-old daughter of Brooke and Ryan Campbell was crowned July 29 at the annual Miss Pre-Teen International Pageant held in Kingsport, Tenn.
More than 30 contestants from around the country competed in interview, fun fashion wear and evening gown categories.
Campbell attends Providence Christian School in Dothan where she is in the seventh grade. She is a junior varsity cheerleader and plans to play tennis in the spring. She has 10 years of dance training, plays the violin, participates in community theatre and plays and enjoys caring for her pet bunnies, Louis and Lennon.
Campbell supports her local Boys and Girls Club through her “Truth in Motion” platform hosting weekly dance and character education classes. Her goal is to help mentor young girls by teaching them they are unique, one-of-a-kind and placed in this world for a purpose. She wants to convey the message that their true identities don’t come from a mirror but their Maker.
As Miss Pre-Teen International 2020, Campbell plans to raise donations to provide each girl that she has the opportunity to speak to a copy of a book that was an inspiration to her as she reached her tween years, “Lies Girls Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free.”
“Being a part of the International Pageants’ system has been an amazing experience and I chose to be a part of it because I saw the opportunity to promote my platform on a much larger scale and more importantly, giving back, serving others and community service,” said Campbell. “As Miss Preteen International, I plan to share my message to as many young girls as I possibly can. I want to maximize the moment and reach far beyond my small town to bring a message of hope and inspiration for young girls.
“I’m looking forward to being a positive role model for young girls everywhere and promoting ‘Dancing Through Life on a Firm Foundation’ which is the mission and motto for my platform, ‘Truth in Motion.’”
The International Pageants’ Miss Pre-Teen competition promotes achievements in academics, the arts, sports and community service. Fifty-percent of each contestant’s score is based on the interview portion of the competition.
Campbell’s goal is to earn a Juris Doctorate and hopefully become the White House Press Secretary.
Headquartered in Roanoke, Va., the International Pageants’ system is a community service-based system and includes the Miss Pre-Teen International, Miss Teen International, Miss International and Mrs. International competitions.
