Miss North Ogden’s Outstanding Teen, Gracie Kay Nichols, represented our community beautifully at the Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant on September 30th. She wowed the audience with her vocal performance of “Feeling Good”, in addition to competing in a private interview, Lifestyle, and Fitness, and received the Preliminary Evening Gown & On Stage Question Award.

She competed with 24 other accomplished young women, and was honored to be the 2nd Runner-Up to Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen! She brought home over $5,500 in scholarship and tuition assistance. Collectively she has received over $6,000 in scholarship from her participation in our program! We are so incredibly proud!

Gracie will represent our community for the remainder of her reign and will continue to promote her community service platform, “Music Matters- The Healing Power of Music”. She is an advocate for music and music education and has been busy performing in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Units, sharing her music program with school classrooms, and is currently spearheading an iPod Drive benefitting Youth Futures. If you have an old iPod or MP3 player that you would like to donate, please bring it to the drop box located at the North Ogden City Offices. They will be used to help the homeless youth in our area heal and be comforted through the power of music.

The Miss North Ogden’s Outstanding Teen program is a local affiliate of Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, the official little sister program of the Miss America Organization.
