World teen pageant contestant coming

The lovely Miss Teen Ponoka County World 2013 will be in Rimbey April 6 to promote a worthy cause

The lovely Miss Teen Ponoka County World 2013 will be in Rimbey April 6 to promote a worthy cause, sign autographs and chat with residents.

Ann-Marie Rogers-Cooper will do a fundraiser for Save the Children from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at My Special Teas.

During that time she will help owner Valerie Ray serve and be available for photos and sign autographs.

As a finalist in the Miss Teen Canada World pageant, all finalists are required to fundraise for the pageant’s charity of choice.

Raising enough funds for Save the Children could move Rogers-Cooper into one of the top 20 spots in the pageant and make her one step closer to the title of Miss Teen Canada World.

Save the Children is an independent organization creating change in lives of children around the world. When disaster strikes Save the Children is there with food, medical care and education. They remain to help communities with long-term recovery programs.

Rogers-Cooper is honored to receive the title of Miss Teen Ponoka County World and is looking forward to going to the Nationals.

“Going to nationals is a great opportunity. I want to show the rest of Canada what Ponoka has to offer and want the country to know how supportive my community is.”
