Miss FL USA YouTube Channel Seminar Day
September 10, 2011
The soundstages of The Hollywood Production Center were packed with pageant contestants, as the tenth annual Miss Florida USA Channel Miss Florida Teen USA Seminar Day was a big success! The day was all about getting to know pageantry the Miss Florida Teen USA way and our aspiring delegates were certainly paying attention. Up first was a meet and greet where the attendees and their families got to know one another. It was great to see the families and pageant directors there to support their young ladies. Then it was off to the television soundstages for a day of pageantry!
First up were self-introductions throughout the audience as each delegate stepped up to the microphone to let everyone know a little more about them. Then it was time to make a group vote as this year the pageant is expanding to sixteen semifinalists thanks to a unanimous vote of the delegates. After the opening announcements it was time to unveil the competition weekend schedule to the attendees. This was lead by our Pageant Executive Producer Grant Gravitt, Jr. and Assistant Pageant Director Mariam Baptista.
Then it was back to business as guest speakers included featured speaker Karina Brez, Miss Florida USA 2012; Kayla Collier, Miss Florida Teen USA 2009, Kim Decker Antos of Exquisite Coach and Robin Flemming, proprietor of our official gown sponsor La Case Hermosa; . They also received some pretty cool gifts courtesy of afternoon sponsor La Casa Hermosa.
After rafelling off several original designs from Elan International Design it was time to say goodnight as the seminar came to a close with group shots divided by area codes as photographs ended the afternoon. The seminar day was also sponsored by Tel-Air Interests and The Hollywood Production Center. A good time was had by all but it was early to bed as Sunday had a 6:30am call!
