Logan West, from Southington, Connecticut, won the crown at the 2012 MISS TEEN USA® Pageant on July 28, 2012 at Atlantis, Paradise Island in the Bahamas. This 19-year-old beauty is the first teen to win the title from the Nutmeg State.
Winning the title of Miss Connecticut Teen USA enabled Logan to spread her message and take her anti-bullying program, “United Against Bullies”, throughout the state. It is estimated that she has reached nearly 20,000 students. However, Logan didn’t stop there. She learned how to lobby and helped pass Act 211A in her home state, which requires school faculty to be properly trained in how to identify and manage bullying. In recognition for her involvement, Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy sent Logan a proclamation. As Miss Teen USA, Logan expanded her program nationally by creating an ambassador program which allows others to educate youth on the importance of respecting each other.
