Langley’s Brette Joyal walked away with the Miss Teen BC crown June 30 in Fort Langley. The pageant will be broadcast on Shaw Television later this fall. The event is unique in the pageant world in that there are no height or weight requirements or restrictions against women who have had children. 

Langley resident wins Miss Teen BC

Fourth year in the pageants twelve year history that Langley has taken top provincial title.

Langley’s Brette Joyal walked away with the Miss Teen BC crown June 30 in Fort Langley.

This is the fourth year out of the pageant’s twelve-year history that Langley has taken the top provincial title.  In addition, two Langley women, Leanne McKnight and Staci Hutchinson, both elementary school teachers, placed in the top 15 finalists for the Miss and Mrs. BC titles.

 

Joyal already knows how she wants to spend her year.  “As Miss Teen BC 2014, I plan on being an ambassador for change in the mental health care system,” she shares.  She has already taken steps towards this goal and will be speaking about mental health awareness in youth to the Langley City Council on July 7 at 7:00 pm, her first public appearance after being crowned.

 

Other provincial titleholders include Taylor Scott from Richmond, who walked away with the Miss BC title; Stanislava Ludmilin from Surrey, who won Mrs. BC; and Tanpreet Parmar from Delta, who was awarded Miss BC Charity for having raised the most money for the pageant’s charity, Cops for Cancer.

 

The pageant will be broadcast on Shaw Television later this month.

 

The Miss BC, Miss Teen BC and Mrs. BC Pageant is unique in the pageant world in that there are no height or weight requirements or restrictions against women who have had children.  This year’s roster of contestants included a woman who was previously a competitor in the Special Olympics as well as a contestant with autism.

 

“Unlike self-styled beauty pageants, Miss BC is about finding role models for BC women.  As a result, the judges are looking for well-spoken, well-rounded, intelligent and outgoing.  Brette clearly impressed them in this regard,” states Darren Storsley, Pageant Director, who was also Mr. World Canada 2007.

 

The Miss, Mrs. and Miss Teen BC Pageant is already conducting interviews for the 2015 pageant.  Interested applicants are encouraged to apply online at http://www.missbc.ca.
