"Winning the People’s Choice Award is a big deal and it could be the beginning of something great in Vanessa’s future,” - Dr. Robert D’Alfonso
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 1, 2010
The 2010 Miss Austin Texas Scholarship Pageant may be over, but the aftermath in the lives of the young ladies who participated in it has just begun. Lakeway dentist Dr. Robert D’Alfonso was the proud sponsor of contestant Vanessa Joy Humphreys. “We were honored to support such an outstanding contestant. Vanessa is an exceptional young lady and that clearly showed during the competition. Winning the People’s Choice Award is a big deal and it could be the beginning of something great in Vanessa’s future,” says Dr. D’Alfonso, owner of Lakeway Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry.
Contestants competed in three categories: Personal Interview, Swimsuit, and Evening Gown. Judging was based on poise, personality, intelligence and beauty. Before competing, each contestant is required to meet the eligibility requirements of residing or attending school in Central Texas, never have been married or given birth to a child, and fall between the ages of 13 and 26.
The Miss Austin Texas Scholarship Pageant offers each participating young lady the option to attend workshops to prepare for the competition. As Ms. Humphreys explains, “This opportunity assists me by building my self-esteem and self-confidence, enhancing my communication skills, and increasing my community involvement.”
The Miss Austin Texas Scholarship Pageant, formerly the Miss Austin Teen USA Pageant, is sponsored by Starr Productions. The pageant has produced two state winners, a Miss USA winner and a runner-up to Miss Universe and is directed by Betty Warner. Ms. Warner offers over twenty-nine years of experience in the pageantry world.
“This is a terrific opportunity for young ladies to participate in, as it helps the individual grow in grace, poise, and self-esteem. In the end, that is what will help Vanessa and her fellow pageant participants succeed in life,” says Dr. D’Alfonso in an interview at the Lakeway Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry office.
The Lakeway Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry brings to Lakeway a culture that has been developed over the last 10 years by Dr. D’Alfonso – a culture that invests in people and in community, and which results in development and progress.
“Ultimately, Vanessa benefited greatly from her experience in the 2010 Miss Austin Texas Scholarship Pageant. We were proud to be a part of it,” noted Dr. D’Alfonso. Ms. Humphreys added, “Thank you, Dr. D’Alfonso, for my winning smile.”
