Breanna was among 172 girls selected from over 900 applicants in early September for the 2014 Miss Teen Raleigh pageant.
After personal interviews and casual and formal wear competitions on October 3 and 4, contestants with the 10 highest overall scores in each division were introduced as this year’s fi- nalists. Each girl was then asked an additional question and judged on their replies, composure while answering, and the general atmosphere created while answering.
