Kadie Roberts Wins “Miss Hawkeye State Junior Miss 2014”

Congratulations to Kadie Roberts, Maharishi School Junior, for winning the “Miss Hawkeye State Junior Miss” title at America’s U.S. Miss Pageant and Scholarship Program, held at the Blackhawk Hotel in Davenport, Iowa, on November 16. Kadie is now eligible to compete in July at America’s National U.S. Miss Pageant in Key West, Florida. America's U.S. Miss Scholarship Program is judged on academic achievement, volunteer service, resume, personality wear, evening gown and a personal interview.

“A lot of people think that beauty pageants are all glitz and glamour,” Kadie says, “but the girls are amazing. Most are straight A students, very involved in extracurricular activities, and captains and leaders of different activities. I love being around them because they are all positive and really smart and funny.”  “I’m learning a lot of skills,” Kadie continues, “such as handling interviews and communicating effectively. I’ll be photographed for the American Prom magazine, and throughout the year will attend fundraisers to help raise money for good causes. Attending all these events helps me learn about event planning, which is the career I want to pursue after college. As a titleholder I will also collect scholarship funds for college.”

“My TM Practice helps me a lot,” Kadie says. “Going into interviews is very nerve wracking. First impressions are so important and it’s the first time we meet the judges. It’s best to speak from the subtlest and deepest level during interviews, and it helps to be calm, so I always make sure to meditate the morning before the contest and the evening after to get more support of nature. Whether I win or lose it’s about the experience and meeting everyone and enjoying and not worrying too much about the outcome. TM helps me be in the moment and to enjoy every step of the way!”

Kadie also competed in the Miss Iowa Teen USA Pageant and was in the top 15. She will compete again next October and hopes to not only make the top 5, but to win in 2014.
We wish her the best of luck in both competitions!
