Toronto, ON: Michelle Weswaldi, Executive Director of Miss Teenage Canada today announced the semi-finalists from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. The Miss Teenage Canada Pageant is the only Pageant that conducts provincial competitions to select National finalists and has the rights to send its winner to represent Canada at the International Miss Teen World Pageant. Organizers are searching the country for fifty Canadian teen girls to compete for the title of Miss Teenage Canada in up to 10 Canadian cities this spring. This final competition will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2009 at 8:00 p.m. at the John Bassett Theatre at the Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto.
Girls aged 13 – 19 from across Canada will compete for the coveted title and the largest prize package awarded in a Canadian teen pageant. Over $25,000 in cash, prizes, and scholarships will be awarded to talented aspiring teens.
This year, “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” is much more than slogan for Miss Teenage Canada. Miss Teenage Canada provides the opportunity to be an ambassador for Canada and its mandate is to empower youth to take a leadership role in their communities. Girls will develop new interests, become a positive role model, and contribute to projects in their community by raising funds for FREE THE CHILDREN. The girls will also be focusing on academics, building self-confidence and learning about all of the qualities that enable a young woman to become a leader of tomorrow.
FREE THE CHILDREN is the official charity of choice for the MTC-W Pageant. Each of the National Delegates is required to raise $400 within their communities for Free The Children. The fundraising initiative is as a prerequisite into the National MTC-W Pageant scheduled for July 25, 2009. The pageant goal is to raise $20,000 by the pageant date.
The search began in Ontario early in 2009 and has moved across Canada. Recent finalists from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia are:

“The regional competitions are 90 percent complete and the response to the search has been fantastic. We have had over 1300 applications and they are still coming in,” says Weswaldi.
Miss Teenage Canada is still accepting applications for girls to apply to participate in the remaining provinces. To select the National finalists’ applicants must first be prequalified in an interview and then compete on stage against 20-45 other contenders. The staged show produced in each province is to showcase the girls’ talents and the overall winner becomes “Miss Teen” of their home province. The remaining top 41 finalists are awarded city titles and invited to travel to Toronto with nine other provincial winners to compete for the title of Miss Teenage Canada on July 25, 2009.
