Miss Atlantic Coast Pageants

An Official Miss America Preliminary Pageant


Congratulations to Our New Miss Delaware's Outstanding Teen...

Tanee DeCosta

On Sunday, March 24, 2013, The Atlantic Coast family reigned supreme as our teen queens took the top two spots at the 2013 Miss Delaware's Outstanding Teen Pageant, in Lewes, Delaware.  We were so excited to hear Tanee and Sammantha's names called in the top three.  

Tanee DeCosta was crowned Miss Delaware's Outstanding Teen 2013 and Sammantha Ponsell walked away with the first runner-up title.  

Both girls committed tireless hours to promoting their platforms and preparing for the state competition. "I was speechless.  It seemed like the entire year of practicing, working with my coaches and doing my bullying prevention platform work just flashed before my eyes.  It all came together and I have a lot of people to thank for that," said the excited MDOT 2013, Tanee DeCosta in a post pageant interview.

After the pageant, it was off to a victory celebration hosted Scott and Sharon Ponsell.  "We wanted to throw a party that would celebrate all of the girls.  These girls have truly given their all and it showed on stage tonight.  We're so proud of our daughter Sammi and Tanee."

The Atlantic Coast family would like to thank The DeCosta, Guinals, and Ponsell families for all of your dedication during this pageant season, our board members, volunteers, husbands and a special thank you to Sheri Jenkins and Jamie Ginn for always lending your expertise to our contestants.

We are looking forward to helping Tanee extend her platform of the "Hate Free Zone" throughout the state of Delaware and are excited about supporting her as she prepares for the National Miss Outstanding Teen Competition.
