The newly crowned Miss Pennsylvania Pre-Teen will receive a $1,000 cash award, the official crown and banner and air transportation to compete in the national pageant at Disneyland in California to represent the state of Pennsylvania.

Contestants will compete in four overall categories, including formal wear, personal introduction, interview and community service project.
