Miss C.R. Outstanding Teen to Compete in Nat'l Competition

In March, 17-year-old Julia Schumacher became the first Miss Coon Rapids Outstanding Teen ever to win the state title as Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen.

"It was definitely an unreal moment,” Julia Schumacher said. “I've been competing in this organization for about three years, so there's been a lot of hard work into it and just hearing my name called felt so unreal and just a really exciting time for me."

Schumacher keeps herself busy with academics and dance, but also works two jobs as a nursing assistant and lifeguard. This fall, she will be a high school senior at Mankato West. Minnesota's Outstanding Teen has put her skills to the test with her social platform which is near and dear to her heart: How to Save a Life.

"My main goal is to teach as many individuals CPR as I possibly can,” Schumacher said.

Julia will be making public appearances around the state this summer including at the Coon Rapids 4th of July parade on Sunday, July 3. Her competitive spirit has her aiming for some big goals. 

"After I release my title as Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen next year, I hope to compete in the 'Miss' organization and run for the title of Miss Minnesota," Schumacher said.

Julia is now preparing for Miss America's Outstanding Teen pageant in August. There will be a community send-off for Schumacher at Riverwind Park on Sunday, July 31  from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. It's a chance for supporters to stop by and wish her well on her way to compete on the national stage in Dallas, Texas.
