Sydney Claire Slaughter, 14, was crowned Miss Sacramento County’s Outstanding Teen at Inderkum High School in Sacramento on Jan. 28.

Founded in 2005 by the Miss America Scholarship Foundation, the Outstanding Teen competition was organized to encourage positive achievement by helping to nurture and build the scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living and community involvement of our nation’s youth. It is a preliminary to both Miss California’s Outstanding Teen and Miss America’s Outstanding Teen. In the past five years, the organization has made available more than $4 million in college scholarships.

As a contestant, Sydney Claire competed in four areas — Personal Interview, Talent, Evening Wear and Lifestyle in Fitness. As part of her duties as 2012 Outstanding Teen, Sydney Claire will speak to local schools and organizations promoting “The No Phone Zone,” and the importance of safe and responsible cell phone use in the car.

She will go on to compete in the Miss California Outstanding Teen Competition in Fresno June 26-30, and if successful will proceed to the Miss America Outstanding Teen Competition in Orlando, Fla., in August.

Sydney Claire is a freshman at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills and is the daughter of Bobby and Kristen Slaughter.
