melissa_marie_festaMrs. Highlands United States 2013 platform:  “Restoring The Shore: Hope For Highlands”

Highlands, NJ – Melissa M. Festa has garnered the title of Mrs. Highlands United States 2013 and will go on to compete at the Mrs. New Jersey United States Pageant in May, where she will join married women from across NJ to promote her personal  platform, fund raise for charities, and compete for a cash award, evening gown, year of image consulting, jewelry, and an all-expense paid trip to the national pageant in Las Vegas, among other prizes. 

Melissa is representing Highlands in Monmouth County, where she is happily married to her husband, Bryan. Melissa holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration of Television and Radio Broadcasting from Monmouth University. She is compassionate about her platform, “Restoring The Shore: Hope For Highlands”. Along with many other surrounding towns, Melissa's hometown was hit extremely hard by Hurricane Sandy. As a representative of Highlands, NJ Melissa hopes to bring much needed attention to this area.

As the premier pageant for New Jersey’s married women since 1990, the Mrs. New Jersey United States Pageant is an official preliminary to the Mrs. United States National Pageant, and honors the achievements of the outstanding married women that call New Jersey their home. Led by executive directors Michelle Harris Anderson (a former Miss Delaware) and Christopher Willshire of Suited To You Productions, the pageant provides New Jersey’s married women the opportunity to celebrate their intelligence, femininity and unique beauty through embracing their roles as wives, professionals, mothers, community champions, and modern women of the 21st century. Women interested in competing must be married, at least 21 years old and a US citizen or permanent resident. They must also either live, work, attend school, own/lease property or be stationed in the military in New Jersey.

Those interested in sponsoring Melissa M. Festa - Mrs. Highlands United States 2013, attending the state pageant to support her in person, or who would like more information about the pageant should contact the state pageant office by calling 877-4-MrsNJUS, or by visiting the pageant’s official website at www.mrsnewjersey.com.
