Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Local resident Carlee Ann Lynch, 10, daughter of Tara and Jeff McCullough and the late Joe Lynch, was recently chosen as a finalist in the National Miss Indiana Pageant.
Carlee Ann Lynch, 10, the daughter of Tara and Jeff McCullough and the late Joe Lynch, has been chosen as a state finalist in the National American Miss Indiana Pageant (NAM).

The pageant will take place Saturday, July 6, at the Marriott in downtown Indianapolis.

The NAM pageants take place for girls ages 4-18, with five different age divisions. Lynch will compete in the pre-teen division.

The winner of the pageant will receive a $1,000 cash reward, a crown and banner, roses and air transportation to the national pageant in California where she will receive a complimentary tour of Hollywood and two V.I.P. tickets to Disneyland.

NAM Pageants are dedicated to celebrating America's future leaders and equipping them with life-long skills.

Each year, the pageant nationally awards $1.5 million in cash, scholarships and other prizes.

Additionally, these pageants strive to keep activities and competitions age appropriate by not allowing girls under the age of 12 to wear makeup, nor do they hold a swimsuit competition.

Emphasis is on self-confidence, inner-beauty, good sportsmanship and setting and achieving goals.

Lynch is a student at Jackson Township Elementary school where she is involved with many activities.

She enjoys gymnastics, dance, swimming, volunteering with the Special Olympics and competing in NAM pageants.

This will be her second year competing.
