The Miss Teen International system has been developed to promote today’s young women, ages 13-18, and their accomplishments. As Miss Teen Louisiana International, Clark will spend her reign making appearances and volunteering for local and state events as a representative of Louisiana teens and support her platform of Keep the Arts Alive – by educating individuals on the importance of keeping the arts program in the school curriculum and the benefits that participating in the arts brings to students. Clark will compete in the Miss Teen International 2012 national competition July 26-28, in Chicago.
