On March 23, Amanda McCabe participated in the 2013 Miss Jr. Pre-Teen Salt Lake City Pageant. She interviewed and had been accepted along with 106 other girls ranging from ages 7 to 19. Not every girl who interviewed was accepted, and Amanda was excited to be on stage. She turned 7 in February — just in time to be eligible to participate. She was also lucky to be contestant No. 7. She had a good and fun experience and hopes to be able to participate in more pageants in the future. She also wants to give a big thank you to all of her pageant sponsors. Thank you.
