Robstown native Pamela Garcia was recently selected to participate in the 2013 Miss Teen San Antonio pageant competition that will take place on Saturday, Dec. 7.

Pamela learned of her acceptance into this year's competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local San Antonio area.

Garcia submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year's San Antonio Pageant Coordinator.

Garcia 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 division, 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, Garcia will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year's San Antonio judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.

If Pamela were to win the title of Miss Teen San Antonio, she would represent San Antonio 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.

Community businesses, organizations, and private individuals will assist Pamela 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 Pamela to become a very confident and well-prepared contestant in this year's San Antonio Pageant.

Any business, organization, or private individual who may be interested in becoming a sponsor to Pamela may contact the Miss Teen San Antonio pageant coordinator, at 1-877-403-6678, or by email at garciapamela76@yahoo.com .
