When Olivia Negri, daughter of Jeremy and Melissa Negri and sister to Preston, was six, she entered first grade.  She also entered the world of pageantry.

Now, at 15 years old, she is a freshman at Chequamegon High School in Park Falls, and she is Miss Price County.

Olivia felt pageants would help her become a better version of herself at a young age.  "I knew I wanted to run for Miss Wisconsin Teen USA," Olivia shared.  "In order to do so, I needed to represent my local area.  I felt like the best decision was to represent Price County.  I needed to get local sponsors, community hours, and much more."

Olivia was able to accomplish her goal, and she attended Miss Teen Wisconsin on May 6th, 7th, and 8th in Middleton, Wisconsin.  Olivia beamed, "My experience was unbelievable.  I met so many new people!  It definitely taught me how to be myself and give me a reason to be there.  I definitely cannot wait to go back next year!  It truly teaches us girls how to be confident and powerful."

Of the competition itself, Olivia said they had to make an introduction on stage, complete a personal interview with the judges, and compete in both active wear and formal wear competitions.  Each teen could choose additional competitions, and Olivia participated in Photogenic, People's Choice, and Spokesmodel.

Learning new skills is Olivia's favorite part of being in pageants.  "Every time I enter and leave a pageant, I feel like I am a better version of myself.  I am planning on continuing pageants for the years ahead.  I will be participating in a few new pageants through the years, hoping to take home a title!"

Olivia said she was honored to be given the opportunity to participate in the Miss Teen Wisconsin program.  "I am also very proud of representing my home, Price County!," she shared.
