Tiffany Seitz, Miss Laurelwood, will represent the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania at the forthcoming Miss America Scholarship Competition. She will also receive more than $8,000 in direct scholarship as well as several in-kind scholarship opportunities.
Seitz, 23, is a resident of Freeport, PA. She is a graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship and minor in Communications. Her social impact platform is “Adoption Advocacy – Restoring Hope, Transforming Lives.” Tiffany was tested cocaine positive and addicted at birth, and not expected to survive. She resided in foster care before eventually being adopted, so her platform is extremely personal, driving her passion to educate the public about fostering and adoption, ultimately helping children in the system to find forever homes and keep their dreams alive.
At the Miss Pennsylvania Scholarship Competition, Tiffany performed a Musical Theatre Jazz Dance to “Moving Lines” from SMASH. She was a preliminary award winner for Evening Wear / Social Impact.
Riley Evans, Miss Moraine State’s Outstanding Teen, is the new Miss Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen and will represent the Commonwealth at the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Scholarship Competition in Orlando, FL.
Riley, who is 16 years of age, will be a senior at Bethel Park High School this fall. A dancer, Riley’s social impact platform is Dancer Against Cancer, raising awareness about cancer and how people can volunteer their time and money to help those living with cancer.
Says Riley: “I’m blessed to be able to represent Pennsylvania and this great organization, and look forward to making a positive impact throughout my year of service!”
