Hi, First, I would like to thank you very much for allowing me to be apart of this years Sunburst pageant. I had so much fun and can't wait to do it again. I know that if you win an award at internationals it paid for you for next year. I can't wait to see when the preliminaries are for the fall in orange park or Jacksonville so I can do it. I had such a blast and met so many people. Once again, thank you for everything. Thanks.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the opportunity and honor for my daughter to represent sunburst as the 2016 international sunburst preteen queen. We had such a wonderful experience and I am already having so many parents reach out to me with questions about our sunburst experience. …We will cherish the memories made this weekend for a lifetime. Looking forward to a fun year ahead!

Hi Theresa, I just landed the cover of a magazine and I wanted to make sure it was okay that I brought up Sunburst being a huge part of my journey. I am going to be interviewed and I hope I can bring up the amazing opportunities you have given me to inspire other kids to enter your pageants. Thank you

My daughter Abbegal competed in the NY sunburst system for many years. It was her very first pageant and truly helped her transform into the women she is today. We now miss Sunburst with Abbegal being grown. The Sunburst system always stood out and is truly something I miss being involved in.

I just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed the pageant at Peru Mall on Saturday! My daughter had a little stage fright, but...we are definitely looking forward to more Sunburst pageants in the future. I wasn't able to catch everyone's names on Saturday, but I just wanted to say thank you. Take care, and we'll be back!

Kristin E.

Wow is been a while that we haven't get in touch and we are missing Sunburst family, I'm hoping to be back this year Leah is been pretty busy lol she did a background job for a movie with Channing Tatum, print modeling and future and a few magazines ???? besides her gymnastics and dance classes I might need some extra arms lol but I just wanted to message you and let you know we didn't forget Sunburst family you will always be in ours hearts ????

Carla W.

I really think your pageant does a great job of promoting natural beauty and self confidence. I see a difference in my girls since we started with Sunburst. I never thought I would be a pageant Dad, but Sunburst has changed that. Doing all of these pageants each year can't be easy. Thanks for all your hard work. Thanks again,

“Hi, isn’t this just a gorgeous day!” The striking woman’s words, echoing across the pool, caught me off guard. It is then that I first met the incredible Theresa Spooner. Touched by the possibility of a new friend, whose perspective could add to my life and whose contagious optimism could spread to my family, I was delighted to talk to her. Theresa exudes personality with a bright smile and warm authenticity. Over the years, as our friendship grew, she joyfully shared her story. In the state’s hyper-competitive pageant circuit, Theresa Spooner, founder and Executive Director of Sunburst USA, Inc. has forged her way nationwide. Like most people’s perceived stigmas of beauty pageants, I was clueless to the amount of courage and bravery it requires to be a SunBurst beauty queen. I was honored when Theresa graciously invited me to judge this years 2018 Florida Sunburst Beauty Pageant Finalist, held in Orlando, FL. I was truly blown away! The SunBurst beauty pageant creates an environment where contestants can exhibit their talent, personalities, interpersonal skills, and sportsmanship, while providing them with opportunities and rewards that will further enhance their lives and provide direction as they pursue their ambitions. With perfected articulation and an abundance of class while announcing contestants, Theresa truly lights up the stage. Theresa Spooner has impacted my life in a bigger way than she probably realizes. I’m grateful she allowed me to be a pageant judge and extremely honored to call her a friend. She teaches by example what it means to allow your inner beauty to lead you, and I sincerely believe that lesson hits home with not only the contestants in the pageant, but with her friends and neighbors. At least it did with me, starting with that gorgeous day by the pool. What can I say; “I’ve been SunBurst!”


Jade and our family absolutely LOVE Sunburst!! You run the best pageant that we've had the pleasure to be apart of so far. You're so organized and it's an added bonus that you have such a kind heart.
