Outstanding Teen candidates visit Connecticut teen’s hometown

Peyton Troth, Miss Connecticut’s Outstanding Teen 2022 of Bristol, Conn. organized a tour of her hometown Dec. 13 for 39 of her fellow Outstanding Teen titleholders from across the country as well as Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Morgan Greco.

State teen titleholders traveled to Connecticut to cheer on their Miss candidates at the Miss America competition, which ended with Grace Stanke winning the national crown at the Mohegan Sun on Dec. 15.

The tour of Troth’s hometown was made possible thanks to Liberty Bank.

The teens visited Bristol Eastern High School, Ivy Drive School, a beneficiary of Peyton’s Promise, and Pavilion Restaurant. The tour ended with a visit to the Bristol Police Department with a moment of silence for the department’s recently fallen officers.

At Bristol Eastern High School, an assembly was held where the teens shared their experience with the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen organization, the benefits of civic action and the scholarship opportunities available through the Miss America Organization and its Teen affiliate. At Ivy Drive School, the teens visited classrooms to read to students, play music and create art projects.

The tour of Bristol was organized to help welcome teens from all over the United States to Connecticut and show some of the local places and experiences residents enjoy.

Troth and her 50 fellow titleholders competed for the title of Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Competition in August, and the Miss America week served as the first reunion for most of the group.
