Absarokee senior Tymber Jensen will again be vying for the title of Miss Montana’s Outstanding Teen later this month in Glendive.

For the Outstanding Teen competition, Jensen will play her alto saxophone and present the community service platform “the Power of One,” according to a press release. Her platform is based on the idea that one person can make a difference and is inspired by a book by Kathryn Otoshi.

An honor student, Jensen is involved in numerous clubs and three sports at Absarokee High School. The press release details how she organized a Valentine’s Day dance this year with all proceeds going to the Children’s Miracle Network.

Jensen will be a senior this fall and is looking to go into a career in public health as a physician assistant, according to the release.

In last year’s Miss Montana’s Outstanding Teen competition, Jensen finished third runner-up. She was also chosen as “Most Photogenic” by Bohle Images and as “Montana’s Choice” based on the number of paid online votes she received.

Jensen earned a $300 scholarship from American Ford for the third runner-up designation and a $1,000 scholarship for earning the title of “Montana’s Choice.”

THE COMPETITION

The Miss Montana’s Outstanding Teen competition, featuring girls aged 14-17, will be held in conjunction with the Miss Montana competition at the Dawson County High School auditorium Thursday and Friday, June 20-21.

Thirteen girls are competing for Outstanding Teen this year in the competition themed “Dare to Make a Difference.”

Each teenager will perform Thursday night, and Jensen and the other contestants will take part in a “Show Us Your Shoes” parade Friday afternoon. During the parade, the girls will show off shoes that have been specially decorated to represent their hometown or platform, according to the press release.

Community members have the opportunity to support their favorite Outstanding Teen contestant online in the “Montana’s Choice” competition. Each vote is $1, and the Outstanding Teen and Miss Montana hopefuls that win the most votes will advance to the semifinals. Votes can be cast online at www.missmontana.com until Friday, June 21.

The Outstanding Teen will be crowned Friday evening, with the winner receiving a $1,100 scholarship and advancing to compete at the national level in Florida next month.
