Beth Campbell qualifies for Miss Teen All-American Cape Henlopen High School junior Beth Campbell will be rep- resenting Delaware in the Miss Teen All-American Pageant in Miami from August 3 to 6. Entries in the Miss Teen All- American competition are judged on poise, personality, intelligence and beauty. Contestants compete in evening gown, swimwear and personal interview. The top prize is $5,000 in cash in addition to prizes and a year of travel and per- sonal appearances. Campbell, 16, needs approxi- mately $700 plus expenses and is trying to raise the funds through local contributions. Kupchick's Restaurant in Lewes is helping her to raise money by donating 50 cents from every $8.50 dinner grill special on Monday night to- ward her cause. Kupchick's has pledged to con- tinue raising funds until Campbell has raised the $700 needed to compete. Patrons are also wel- come to make any individual con- tributions to help the Lewes resi- dent. Campbell, who maintains a B average, has already said that if she wins, she expects to donate a portion of the $5000 prize to char- ity and use a portion for her col- lege fund. A statement from the pageant says that the pageant "has a re- markable record of young women who go on to college and to suc- cessful careers in motion pic- tures, televi- sion and mod- eling. Both film star and Revlon spoke- model Halle Berry and Shanna Moak- CAMPBELL ler of Pacific Blue began their careers with us." The statement goes on to note "Each contestant selected pos- sesses a rare combination of per- sonal charm, physical beauty and outgoing personality which quali- fies her...Through their participa- tion, these young women gain in- creased confidence, poise and self-esteem, qualities which will serve them well throughout their lives and make them all winners at whatever they choose to do...This is a rare opportunity for any young woman, and today, when it is most important, our pageant stresses intelligence, good grooming, genuine charm, poise and Americanism."

Each counselor received a personalized portfolio inscribed in celebration of the partner- ship between the high schools and the TRIO programs: Educational Talent Search, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science and Student Support Services. These federally fund- ed programs are designed to enable citizens, regardless of race, ethnic background or eco- nomic circumstance, to enter into and graduate from college successfully. "The continuation of funding for these programs depends on getting good results and reaching the stated goals, which would not be possible without the support of these high school counselors," said Bonnie Hall, TRIO department chair. "This event is a way to recog- nize their contributions and to celebrate our students' successes and achievements." Pictured with Hall (third from right) are Owens campus director Tim Kavel, far left; dean of instruction Judith Caldwell, far right, and counselors from Cape Henlopen, Delmar, Indian River, Laurel, Milford, Seaford, Sussex Central, Sussex Technical and Woodbridge High schools.

The science experts treated parents and children to a variety of hands-on science investigations including magic sand, floating needles, pierc- ing a balloon with a stick without breaking it, measuring how fast a jar can be emptied and more. The program was part of a National Science Foundation grant. Here the Harmon fami- ly of Rehobeth Beach (l-r) Cathy, Darren and Hunter, grade 1, practice their investigative science skills.
