Lewis-Palmer High School sophomore Emma Tillotson took home fourth runner up as well as the spokes model award in this year’s Miss Colorado Teen USA Pageant. She received a $23,000 scholarship to Lindenwood University in Missouri.

Tillotson, 16, also competed last year but didn’t place.

“My goal was to be named in the top 15,” she said in a news release. “When they called my name in the top 5, it was surreal. I felt as if I had already won.”

The competition was held Oct 28-29 at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley.

The event consisted of three proportional segments: evening gown, active wear, and personality interview.

As a finalist, Tillotson was judged in the onstage question category as well. Tillotson also chose to compete in the optional spokes model competition, which she won.

This Miss Universe Organization, which encompasses Miss Universe, Miss USA and Miss Teen USA beauty pageants, empowers women to be self-confident and strive to be their personal best.

The pageants provide an international platform through partnerships with charities, sponsors and brands around the world.

During their reign, our winners are given the tools to personally and professionally enrich others by providing humanitarian efforts to affect positive change, all while developing their personal career goals.
