Hailey Clarke, 7, and a second-grader at Townsend Elementary School, became Delaware's first USA Ambassador Junior Pre-Teen when she was crowned at a pageant at A.I. DuPont Middle School in Delaware.

Founded in 2010, the USA Ambassador organization stands on the principals of robust charity involvement and elevating girls and women through Success, Leadership, Integrity, Character and Confidence (SLICC). To date the organization has donated to over 20 charities, with Big Brothers and Big Sisters serving as the National Charity Beneficiary. The Jr. Pre-Teen Division is open to girls ages seven to nine and demands strong interviewing skills, poise and discipline.

During her reign, Hailey will exemplify the SLICC model every day, especially when promoting platforms for empowering girls, helping others, and preserving the environment.

As a second grader at Townsend Elementary School, Hailey is a model student. She recently received awards for Excellence Day and Advanced Reading. Outside of her regular school activities, Hailey loves cheering for MOT All Stars, where her squad won the Delaware State Championship for Mini Level 1 Division. She also practices lyrical and tap dance at The Dancing Lights (Peachtree Station), and takes violin lessons at Music and Arts.

As a Jr. Pre-Teen Queen, Hailey and two other sister queens, Chardiney J. Woods and Keilanna Brown, will represent their home state of Delaware at the national pageant in Tampa, Florida from July 24 to 30. Sponsorship opportunities and donations are also accepted through a GoFundMe account:
