Additionally, Arabella Kostecki was selected Miss Congeniality.

It is truly an honor to step in and lead as the next chair of The Youth Ambassador program,” said Lisa Albizu-Vazquez. “In efforts to have a larger presence and in turn deeper impact within the community, this program is shifting its focus to a more youth-led, community-wide contribution to fostering community service.”
