New Queen 2022 Miss Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen Jersey Smith will represent her state Pennsylvania in upcoming 17th Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2022 Competition during 3-day event August 10-12, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas in Dallas, Texas with Grand Finale on Fri, August 12, 2022
Sign-off Statement by Jaylen Baron Miss Pennsylvania's Outstanding Teen 2021: I could write a whole book about how impactful the Miss America Organization has been on my life thus far. But the cliff notes version is that little 16-year-old, Jaylen, decided to compete in a local competition in Philadelphia on a whim back in 2019. Three years later, she is Miss Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen, on a full-tuition scholarship at The University of Alabama, an advocate, a young, empowered woman, Teens in Actions Finalist, Overall Interview Winner, and a Top 10 Finalist at Miss America's Outstanding Teen. It has been the biggest blessing representing Pennsylvania and it is something I will cherish for the rest of my life.
I live by a poem that is written so beautifully on my mother’s gravestone, and I share it with you all in hopes that each person hearing this takes it with them during their days.
Let your smile be your logo, your personality be your business card, and how you leave others feeling after an experience with you be your trademark.
Although this is sad— history dictates that the end of one chapter leads to an exciting beginning of the next! I will continue to play and live in the present, knowing that I can’t change the past or be overwhelmed with the possibilities of the future. I will strive to continue to make a positive impact on society! Thank you, Pennsylvania, for being the best state to represent! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me!
Congratulations to our new Miss Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen 2022, Jersey Gianna Smith! I am so excited for you and will be cheering you on throughout your whole journey.
