MONTCLAIR, NJ – Immaculate Conception High School Senior, Akilah Love of Newark, was recently selected to participate in the 2014 Miss Teen New York pageant competition that will take place on Sunday November 16.  Love learned of her acceptance into this year's competition when the pageant announced their selections following interviewing in the local New York area. Love submitted an application and took part in an interview session that was conducted by this year's New York Pageant Coordinator.

Love will be competing, for her share of thousands of dollars in prizes and specialty gifts that will be distributed to contestants. Love will be competing in the Miss Teen-ivision, one of four divisions that will have young ladies ages of 7 and 19 competing in modeling routines, which include casual wear and formal wear. Most important, Love will display her personality and interviewing skills while interviewing with this year's New York judging panel. Personality is the number one aspect that each contestant is judged on during all phases of competition.

If Love were to win the title of Miss Teen New York, she would represent New York and the surrounding communities at the National Competition that will take place in Orlando, Florida. Over $30,000 in prizes and awards will be presented at the National Competition while each winner enjoys this expense paid trip of five nights and six days.
