Miss Lakeland USA &
Miss Lakeland Teen USA
April 6, 2012
“The Road to Hollywood” made its annual stop in Polk County for the ninth edition of Miss Lakeland USA & Miss Lakeland Teen USA. Held at Lakeland Civic Center this was the birthplace of the Miss Teen USA Pageant as well as the home to two Miss USA contestants and for ten years Miss Florida Teen USA. The Lake Hollingsworth Grand Ballroom greeted the four Miss Teen USA delegates and three Miss USA delegates in their white or red cocktail dresses as they introduced themselves to the audience and the pageant was on.

The hostesses for the afternoon were Miss Sanford Teen USA 2014 Kennedy McClain and Miss Orlando USA 2014 Carolina Guzman as well as Miss Tampa Ban Teen USA 2014 Olivia Caputo as they kept the competition fun and flowing throughout the afternoon. After setting up the evening’s competition it was time for the delegates to compete in the traditional competitions onstage. Swimwear began the competition followed by Evening Gowns of the delegates choosing and of course the delegates had to tackle the interview questions onstage.
