Vernon teen Samantha Sewell has been crowned Miss Teenage Okanagan.

Sewell, a Vernon Secondary Grade 11 student earned her title in Richmond March 1, securing her a spot in the Miss Teen Canada Pageant which will be held this summer in Toronto.

This was the first pageant that Sewell had entered and she was one of 15 girls to win a crown. The Miss Teenage Canada program focuses on finding girls with confidence, interview skills, poise, grace and physical fitness.

Sewell was selected to be one of 28 delegates out of more than 2,000 applicants.

She is an honour roll student and volunteers at her school and in the community.

Sewell loves to volunteer in her school’s resource room and plans to become a special education teacher.

Her platform is anti-bullying and this is something she plans on addressing during her year long reign as Miss Teenage Okanagan.

Sewell will be attending events and fundraisers throughout the coming year and looks forward to meeting people from all over the Okanagan.

She would like to thank Steve Bertram 3% Value Plus Real Estate, Sue Warner Legal Shield, Northshore Construction and Dr. Dalen Quinton for sponsoring her and a special thanks to Kelsey Raber of Raber Photography and to everyone at VSS.
