Missouri has a new Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen and Palmyra has another reason to be proud.
Mallory Sublette of Palmyra, was crowned this weekend in the Missouri Military Academy gymnasium.
“I am on top of the world,” said Sublette of winning the title. “I have dreamed about being Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen since I got involved with this organization at the age of six. I am so thankful for everyone who supported me along the way, and I cannot wait to hit the ground running.”
Sublette, the daughter of Brandon and Jessica Sublette, is a high school student at Palmyra. Her original title was Miss Flower City’s Outstanding Teen.
Sublette, who danced for her talent, also received the Dancing Queen Award in honor of former Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen McKensie Garber, the Most Photogenic, and the Digital Strategist award.
Since winning the title, things have not slowed down for Sublette, who on Monday went to Kansas City for a photo shoot and will be headed to Arkansas next week to shop for her national competition’s wardrobe.
“There will be several prep sessions between now and August when I leave,” she said.
The Miss America Outstanding Teen competition will be held Aug. 10-12 in Dallas, Texas.
As a titleholder, Sublette developed her own program, “Wellness 360” for her platform. She described it as: “Promoting intentional efforts towards social, emotional, and physical wellness that create a healthy life balance.”
“I am going to continue to spread my message of Wellness 360 all across the state so every person can learn how to maximize their potential through being in a state of overall wellness,” she said.
As Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen, Sublette will receive a $7,000 scholarship as well as a prize package that includes the official crown, sash, wardrobe allowance, travel allowance, talent consultations and several wardrobe sponsors: The Royal WE, Serendipity, and Natalie M.
“I am making it my mission to serve and represent every individual in the state of Missouri,” Sublette said. “I am a small town girl who is getting the chance to take on the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen stage, and I want other small town girls to know that they can do the same.
“Blazing a trail to help the next one in line is something that I will do everything in my power to make happen.”
Sublette noted she is also excited about the traveling she will get to do as Miss Missouri Outstanding Teen.
“Small towns and big cities are equally as important in composing their great state,” she said. “They should all be seen, visited, and appreciated. As Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen I will do just that.”
Rounding out the top five of the Miss Missouri Outstanding Team competition were:
• First runner-up, Miss Northeast’s Outstanding Teen Camryn Crist of Moberly. She is the daughter of Matt and Shannon Crist.
• Second runner-up, Miss Northwest’s Outstanding Teen Olivia DeGrave of Kansas City. She is the daughter of Jason and Jami DeGrave. This is DeGrave’s first year of competing in the program.
• Third runner-up, Miss Spirit of St. Louis’ Outstanding Teen Bridget Caldwell of Florissant. She is the daughter of Scott and Tara Caldwell. This is also Caldwell’s first year of competing in the organization.
• Miss Show Me State’s Outstanding Teen Kyleigh McCourt of St. Louis. She is the daughter of Chris and Tammy McCourt.
The Miss Missouri Scholarship Organization is one of the largest providers of scholarships to young women in the state. This year, the organization will award $85,000 in scholarships between the Miss and Outstanding Teen programs. Tonight’s Miss Missouri’s Outstanding Teen Class of 2019 received $29,000 in scholarships.
