Message from Rob Campbell,
Below is Miss Teen Canada – World 2013 Megha Sandhu at Balzacs Coffee House in the Distillery District of Toronto. Every year this picture is the same, only different.
The 2013 Search for Miss Teenage Canada enjoyed a thrilling scavenger hunt at the Distillery Historic District and many girls visited Balzacs and did survey the scene of the great picture pose, and some snapped themselves in this framing, which for me is a terrific honour. There was a comprehensive write up about 2013 Miss Teenage Canada Megha Sandhu at Distillery District, and once again I’ll mention that the photo seen above of her crowned head and shoulders at Balzacs is something of a tradition.
Here is my favourite shot of Megha in which you can see a young person entering into a brand new role in life. She is literally feeling the weight of the crown. Minutes later here at Pure Spirits Oysters Toronto in the Distillery District there were two young girls asking for autographs – they saw the sash and the crown and realized they were in the presence of a celebrity, Its amazing and I was struck by it .. but for Megha, on this day it was a real awakening; she was still getting used to wearing the uniform and being Canada’s foremost teen ambassador
New Miss Teenage Canada 2012 Regional Delegates Squidoo Lens was created to display photos and text and twitter feeds from the annual event. I love the videos here. This lens is actually my pet project and will immortalize the 2012 event in history forevermore
The blogs found fashion and beauty brand sponsors and relevance in different ways…
Each delegate recorded their first posts and these are indexed on the Squidoo lens.
The excitement of the night is preserved forever in the pictures of the day – over sixty girls in dress rehearsal hours before the show at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto. Here are the Miss Teens rehearsing the opening number – look carefully and you’ll see some of them don’t have shoes on their feet yet… That’s the kind of excitement we’re talking about.
Danica Cox won the Social Media award sponsored by S-Trip and she will join Megha Sandhu on a Grad Trip to some exotic destination, somewhere in the world.

LOOK GOOD, DO GOOD, FEEL GOOD video for sponsor, Aveda Canada
This video is the end result of a extensive campaign for Aveda Canada Professional Hair School and Beauty School that harnessed the Regional Delegates as performers and probably writer and director too.
This video was created by over sixty submissions to the Miss Teen Canada Blog network Video upload page wherein the best were taken and cut into a meaningful assembly that showcases ‘Beauty Superheroes’
We also asked each participant to write about what was happening behind the scenes. We wanted to know who was the camera person and who helped decorate the sets or make the props or provide some logistical support – its in this post that the 64 Miss Teens thanked the Aveda Institute locations in their home provinces for sponsoring the unique video challenge.
