Times are changing and so is one of the most popular beauty pageants in the country-- Miss Teen USA!
The swimsuit competition is being eliminated as the organization behind it gives the event a modern update.
In these days of body-shaming, it's time to shake off old traditions!
Now, lovely ladies between the ages of 14 and 19 years old, will strut their stuff in a new competition to show their "athleticism."
Sporty looks are focused on physical fitness and women who lead active, purposeful lives. It sends a more positive body-image for its younger participants vying for the crown.
The motto behind Miss Teen USA is "confidently beautiful," so change may not be such a bad thing.
The next Miss Teen USA competition will be held July 30, 2016.
