Two local girls win national pageant title

Canadian Tiny Miss and Petite Miss are both Abbotsford residents.

Two young Abbotsford girls are now Canadian royalty after winning titles in the National Canadian Girl, Teen and Miss Pageants, held earlier this month in Vancouver.

The event is not a beauty pageant, but is an all-natural pageant judged on personality and ability to speak in public. At nationals, girls four and older are expected to do an introduction of themselves as well as an interview. The pageant is designed to build self-esteem and self confidence, teach good sportsmanship, poise and public speaking as well as being involved in the community.

Bella-Rose Taylor, 5, took home the title of National Canadian Tiny Miss. Alyssa Brown, 6, was named National Canadian Petite Miss.

For the next year the girls will be raising money and collecting toys for B.C. Children’s Hospital, and will be attending a variety of local events.
