Leah Kincaid has been chosen to compete in America’s National Teenager Scholarship Program for gifted young women ages 9 – 25 hosted this year in Nashville, TN. Contestants who attend ANTSO are among the brightest in the country, having won their state representation through academic, community service, interview and onstage competitions.
“Being able to represent a pageant system that focuses their attention to academics, beauty, community service and interview is an experience beyond words,” Leah says. “By being Miss South Carolina National Teenager, children look up to me as a role model. Showing them that beauty is only skin deep, ANTSO helps me promote the importance of academics, giving back to your community and how far a positive attitude can take you in life.”
Leah is a Freshman currently taking Honor and Advanced Placement classes.
Also, Leah is a member of the Lexington High School Varsity cheer team, Lexington Track and Field, Coverage editor for the Cat’s Paw Yearbook staff, National Society of High School Scholars, Key Club, Women’s Selected Chamber Choir, President of the National Jr. Honor Society and selected to attend South Carolina’s Governor’s School of the Arts and Humanities Vocal Academy Program this upcoming summer.
She is also actively involved at the Mt. Horeb Methodist Church in Lexington. Leah is the creator of Got 2 B Fit, a fitness program for children in elementary schools teaching them how to live a healthy lifestyle while having fun in a dance exercise class.
“While teaching the class with songs the kids love, I see the kids’ faces light up with big smiles across their faces with so much happiness and my heart fills up with joy. Teaching the class has showed me how I can affect someone’s life in a positive way and that is my goal with this prestigious title,” Leah says.
Representing South Carolina, Leah will compete July 22-28, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee. The 2014 National event in Nashville, TN will consist of several days in competition, and fun city events like a Celebration Party at the famous General Jackson, a Nashville photo shoot, and family fun game nights. Winners will walk away with more than $40,000 in scholarships for college along with various other prizes.
