Galloway Township now home to Miss New Jersey Outstanding Teen

    Sixteen-year-old Amanda Ross of Galloway Township beat out 16 of her peers Saturday to become Miss New Jersey Outstanding Teen.

    Ross represented Italy in the competition’s Olympics theme, participated in the talent segment and answered questions about her inspiration to take the crown.

    Held annually, the event at Millville Senior High School was open to 13- to 17-year-olds who are not graduating seniors.
