Kiley Ciroli of Barnesville, and senior at Barnesville High School, has been crowned Miss Ohio Teen. On July 8 and 9, she competed in the National American Miss state pageant. State pageants are held annually nationwide.

"I have the honor of being crowned Miss Ohio Teen and doing so I will be competing at the national level in November in Anaheim, California against teens from all 50 states for the title of National American Miss Teen," Ciroli said.

National American Miss's mission is to encourage America's future leaders and equip them with valuable life skills. National American Miss is dedicated to developing the success of young women across our nation with a program that is designed to be age appropriate and family-oriented.

The pageant program is based on inner beauty, as well as poise, presentation, and offers an "All American Spirit" of fun for family and friends. Emphasis is placed on the importance of gaining self-confidence, learning new skills, learning good attitudes about competition, and setting and achieving personal goals. The pageant is comprised of four categories of competition; community service, formal wear, personal introduction, and an interview by each judge.
