Miss Clarendon 2016 Sara Elizabeth Levitt poses with Miss South Carolina 2015 Daja Dial.

Columbia resident Sara Levitt was crowned Feb. 6 as Miss Clarendon Teen 2016, and will represent Clarendon County in June in the Miss South Carolina Outstanding Teen Pageant. She is a junior at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, and will feature several snippets with her throughout the coming weeks so we can get to know her a little better.
Sara is no stranger to pageants, having been both Miss Sophomore and Miss Junior at her high school.
She said she competed in Miss Clarendon “to put (herself) out of her comfort zone and make a difference by sharing her personal platform.”
More on Sara’s platform can be found at this link.

    Why is a Columbia resident representing Clarendon County?

    Per the rules in the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Pageant, and the Miss South Carolina Pageant, a local preliminary can be closed to certain geographic areas or an open pageant. Miss Clarendon is an open pageant, which means that any eligible young lady compete for the title of Miss Clarendon or Miss Clarendon Teen. Sara was crowned Miss Clarendon Teen after competing against nine other young ladies for the title, before a panel of five judges, in five different areas of competition. The committee feels that being an open pageant will help promote Clarendon County on a state level, what better way to promote how awesome we are by allowing young ladies from across the state spread the message about how we leave a lasting impression. We started the pageant to give Clarendon County young ladies the chance to follow in Marian McKnight’s footsteps, however we can’t make Clarendon County young ladies compete, and further more we see the benefit of the Miss South Carolina program and want to share the values that it promotes to all competitors. And for reference, the three Miss America’s crowned from the state of New York, were all born and raised in a state other than New York. We love Sara, and are very proud of the work she is doing to promote her platform of accepting people with disabilities, raising money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and promoting Clarendon County.
    Thank you,
