Dallas, Texas -- Galleria Dallas has long been the go-to shopping destination for North Texans. On Aug. 8, it will also be the place where accomplished teens with outstanding poise will gather to celebrate being Miss America’s Outstanding Teen candidates. 

Galleria Dallas will play host to 51 sensational young women from across the country as they gather at the center for a day of friendly fun. They’ll be in town for Miss America’s 2023 Outstanding Teen competition, which will be held Aug. 10-12 in Dallas. 

These talented teenagers, who will be competing for thousands of dollars in college scholarships, will kick off their week at Galleria Dallas with an 8:00 a.m. breakfast at Nordstrom Marketplace Café before taking to the ice at Galleria Dallas Ice Skating Center at 10:00 a.m. These activities will give the teens time to get to know one another and bond before the three days of competition. 

The candidates will gather at 11:00 a.m. on Level 1 of the center in front of the Back to School Wall for a meet-and-greet session during which they’ll sign autographs. Miss America 2022 Emma Broyles and Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2022 Marcelle Leblanc will also appear at the meet and greet and sign autographs.

“The Miss America Organization is excited to visit the premier destination of the Galleria Dallas to showcase our Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Candidates,” said Shantel Krebs, board chair of the Miss America Organization. “The Galleria ice-skating rink will provide an opportunity for the candidates to bond. The Miss America Organization awards $5 million in scholarships a year and we are truly grateful that Galleria Dallas is a part of and supporting this women’s empowerment organization.”

In addition to the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen candidates’ appearance at Galleria Dallas, the center will also play host to Miss America candidates on Aug. 10 as they gather at the new Flea Style location for a fun private shopping experience at the boutique’s hat bar. 

“We’re delighted to host these talented and poised candidates for Miss America’s Outstanding Teen at Galleria Dallas during this back-to-school season,” said Megan Townsend, the center’s director of marketing and partnerships. “We love the opportunity to support this women’s empowerment organization that helps young women attend college.”
