America’s National Teenager Scholarship Organization (ANTSO) is the longest running premier pageant for teens in the U.S. Founded in 1970; Miss National Teenager has graced the cover of magazines, television and national media as a role model of leadership, scholastic aptitude and service. Combining the elements of glamour, scholarship, style and service, our ANTSO State and National Programs draw on a positive approach to pageantry that implements a scoring system focusing on a “real girl.” With no swimsuit or mandatory talent competition, ANTSO focuses on YOU, as a typical teen in your daily life, highlighting what makes you special!

Recently, Bloomsburg University’s very own freshman Lee Ann McDermott was crowned Miss Pennsylvania at this year’s pageant. Congratulations, Lee Ann. Bloomsburg University should be honored to have not only a student who had the honor in participating in such a fabulous event, but also being crowned.
If you yourself are interested in taking part in such a wonderful experience, all the information, requirements, FQA’s and services are displayed accordingly on the America’s National Teenager Organization’s website at www.nationalteen.com. This pageant organization focuses mainly on academics, community involvement, and personality. Take the chance and have some fun, learn more about yourself as an individual, and be positive. Who knows, perhaps you could be Bloomsburg’s next crowned princess!
