Lower Pottsgrove resident Faith Drumheller, 16, has been named as the 2017 Pennsylvania USA Ambassador Teen by the Tampa based USA Ambassador Pageant.
She will travel in July to Innisbrook Resort in Tampa, Florida to represent the Keystone State and compete in the 2017 national pageant where the contestants will be scored in four categories.
During the national competition, individual interview with judges comprises 35 percent of the score, onstage chat 15 percent, with evening gown 25 percent and fashion wear 25 percent as the remaining categories scored to detennine the winner.
In addition to the overall compulsory competitions, delegates may enter optional competition categories of Natural and Glamour Photogenic, Fit and Fabulous, Runway Modeling, Community Service, Academic
Achievement/Resume, and Spokesmodel.
"The USA Ambassador system is a charity driven organization with a mission to promote success through leadership, integrity, character and confidence," Drumheller said, "and pageantry is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in important life skills such as being interviewed and presenting yourself with poise and confidence in a business setting."
Exemplifying the mission of the USA Ambassador system, charity and service are a part of Faith's everyday
life. She's an active volunteer at the Keystone Villa Retirement Community, as well as a dedicated and committed tutor for elementary students through a program known as Project Purpose.
The charity she holds closest to her heart is "In Ian's Boots," a charity that collects and provides shoes and winter boots to those in need.
Faith is a 10th grade student at West-Mont Christian Academy and a year-round volleyball junkie.
Her journey in pageantry got off to a super start in 2016, as she competed for the first time, winning both an Overall Beauty title as well as Most Photogenic competitions.
Faith is thrilled to be a part of the 2017 USA Ambassador "BeTheGood" family, and will compete at nationals to win a prize package that includes a cash award, and three exciting national trips that include a cruise, a trip to Washington, DC and a holiday trip to New England.
Additionally, the prize package contains a national photo session and the opportunity to appear as a national titleholder in the prestigious Pageantry Magazine.
