Rylie Young, Miss Brainerd Lakes Outstanding Teen, and Kate Smith, Miss Central Lakes Outstanding Teen, were chosen as Tracie Joy McBride Teen in Action finalists.

The Tracie Joy McBride (TJM) scholarships honor well-rounded servant leaders who display commitment to service work and who live with integrity, humility and character. They embody a true servant's heart, investing countless hours into individuals and their communities to improve a quality of life for their fellow citizens.

These scholarships honor the young women who have made service and blessing others their life's mission, not just their pageant mission.

Young and Smith have worked extensively with their platforms.

Young, 14, is the daughter of Mark and Susan Young of Lake Shore. She is a freshman at Pequot Lakes High School, where she is on the honor roll and taking college accredited courses. She was the recipient of the Crow Wing County Youth Leadership award in 2012 and 2013.

Her platform is "Promoting Girls' Interest in STEM." She hopes to help promote young girls' interest in science, technology, engineering and math.

Smith, 16, is the daughter of Allen and Kirsten Smith of Baxter. She is a junior at Brainerd High School who will be enrolling in Post-Secondary Enrollment Option for her senior year.

Her platform is "Perfection is Fiction: Embrace the Reflection in the Mirror; the Importance of Loving the True You."

Young and Smith will represent the Brainerd Lakes Area at the Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen Scholarship Pageant on April 11 at New Prague High School.

The Miss Brainerd Lakes Scholarship Pageant will be held at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 at Tornstrom Auditorium in Brainerd. Young women are sought to compete for the titles of Miss Brainerd Lakes, Miss Central Lakes, Miss Brainerd Lakes Outstanding Teen and Miss Central Lakes Outstanding Teen 2016.
