Miss Weber County’s Outstanding Teen, Gracie Kay Nichols, a 17-year-old Weber High School Student and North Ogden resident, represented our community and county beautifully at the Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant on February 27th, 28th, and 29th in Provo, Utah. Her multiple talents shined as she wowed the audience while dancing to an original composition that she wrote, composed, sang, and recorded! In addition, she competed in evening gown and on-stage question, and won the top award in lifestyle and fitness preliminary, as well the top award for judges private interview.
She competed with 40 other accomplished young women from all across the state, and was honored to be selected as first runner-up to Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen. She brought home over $10,000 in scholarships and tuition assistance. Gracie continues to promote community service by raising awareness about her platform: “Embracing Differences”. Her goal is to help others view their differences in a positive new way. “When we truly love ourselves and embrace our own differences, it empowers us to love and accept the differences of others”, said Gracie. Gracie also uses the influence of social media by interviewing people on her talk show “Embrace with Grace”. Gracie’s end goal is to have more positivity and inclusion in the community and she hopes to influence others through her words, actions, and example. The Miss Utah’s Outstanding Teen program is a local affiliate of the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen program and the official little sister of the Miss America Organization.
