Claire Wright, a 16-year-old Fall City teen, represented Washington as Miss Washington Teen at the USA Ambassador National Pageant, held Monday, Aug. 4, in Tampa, Fla. Wright was third runner-up at nationals and won the “Best in Class” award for her academic achievements and activities.

She also placed as first runner-up for her commitment to volunteering and for community involvement.

Wright holds the title of Miss Washington Jr. Teen 2013-2014 for the National American Miss pageant. She completed her year of reign and crowned her successor on August 10.

Wright has also created “Claire Bear” teddies to represent the different aspects of bullying, and to give hope to kids who are bullied or who want to stop bullying. She visits schools to talk about her own experiences in overcoming being bullied, and last fall she shared her message with students at Fall City Elementary School, where she had been an elementary school student.
