Who will be the next to wear the crown and earn the title of Miss Apopka?
Join us this Saturday, October 12, 2019, at Apopka High School to find out! Tickets are just $10 at the door (cash only please) and children are only $6. The competition begins at 7:30 PM.
This year, we have six “Legendary” women gracing our stage, Kylie Blakely, Kelty Zavitz, Amber Boykin, Reilly Cardella, Sierra Hack, and Amanda Kronhaus. Each candidate will compete live in three competitions: On-Stage Judges Question, Talent, and Evening Wear/Social Impact Statement. A private interview with the judges will have taken place earlier that morning. To round out the evening, we will have performances by Apopka’s very own KidzDance Competition Teams and your current Miss Apopka, Madison Zavitz and her Sunshine Princess, Cadence Alce.
Continuing with tradition, our Mistress of Ceremonies will be the current Miss Florida, and we are thrilled to announce that Michaela McLean, will be gracing our stage. Miss McLean is from neighboring Clermont and attended the University of Alabama with a Double Major in Dance and Public Relations with Specialization in Sport and Entertainment Communication Management.
Miss McLean is a passionate advocate for her social impact initiative, “Brave & Beautiful: Breaking Free from Behind the Screen”. She recognizes the addictive misuse of social media by young women today as an escalating mental health crisis that breeds social anxiety, depression, negative body image, and isolation. Her three-pronged approach to promoting young women’s social media literacy is to create positive, purpose-driven media, educate young women through an evidence-based curriculum teaching transformational strategies on establishing and maintaining healthy habits, and advocate for legislation that implements programs and funding of advisory councils to facilitate meaningful conversations resulting in positive mental health and productive lifestyles.
Michaela McLean will go on to represent the State of Florida in the nationally televised Miss America Competition this December.
