A new queen graced the stage of Kubasaki High School Auditorium on Saturday during the Miss Teen Okinawa Pageant. Miss Cara Neudigate was crowned, Miss Teen Okinawa, while Chantell Pryer was the first runner up and Twa'lea Randolph took second runner up honors. Other awards included were Best Formal wear, Miss Monica Lyma-Young, Best Talent, Miss Kimberly Major, Best Interview, Miss Carolyn Glass, and Miss Congeniality, Miss Hayley Blacio. Two Senior Scholastic Achievement Awards for $500 each, and one Junior Award for a $100 Savings Bond and $200 in cash were also presented. The pageant, sponsored by the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity featured the talents of 23 high school students on Okinawa. Each contestant competed in a private interview, talent and formal wear thereby selecting ten finalist who competed in an on-stage interview to determine the winner.

Cara Neudigate a Kadena High School senior, walked away with prizes and a scholarship package worth $7,000. The scholarship itself was worth a total of $3,000. While the 1st runner-up prize package offered a $700 scholarship and the 2nd runner up also won a $300 scholarship.

The evening started as a magical event for young ladies to showcase talent, poise and exceptional grace. The confidence and charismatic personality of each contestant truly captivated the audience. Although there were obvious technical difficulties encountered, each of the contestants managed to hold their composure enduring pressure from an enthusiastic and some what impatient audience and anticipation of the outcome of the competition.

Pageant Director, Rezolia "Coco" Johnson-Charleston and program founder, told Japan Update, she was extremely pleased with the outcome of the pageant and hopes that next year the pageant will continue the success of this year with even more contestants, scholarships, and prizes.
