NEWTON, NJ – Over the summer when many nine year-olds were at camp or swimming or playing with friends, Mackenzie Genung was awarded the national title of USA National Miss Northern New Jersey Princess. She was also awarded the National Media Relations Award.
She and her mother traveled to Disney World in Orlando, FL for the national competition. There she competed in runway competition, an interview and evening gown event. Genung also competed in casual wear and a live photogenic competition.
Leading up to the national competition, Genung had made more than 100 appearances and completed over 200 hours of community service in only eight months.
Genung had received her bronze, silver and gold Presidential Awards in 2014 and 2015. She has completed over 400 hours of community service in 2014 and 2015.
Last April Genung was recognized by a proclamation of the Newton Town Council for her accomplishments and volunteer services.
