Teale started competing in 2008 when she was a non-finalist at Miss Texas Teen USA. After moving to Utah she placed fourth runner-up at Miss Utah USA from 2009 to 2011, second runner-up in 2012, as a semi-finalist in 2013 and then finished first runner-up in 2014 and 2015. The crowning video is amazing - the roar when she was announced was awesome and the contestants all mobbed her at the end! Many former titleholders helped crown her - all girls she had finished as a runner-up to. I will remember it as one of my favourite crownings ever.
Among the semi-finalists were last year's third runner-up Andrea Jackson and fourth runner-up Alecsy Christensen. Paris Fisher placed as a semi-finalist for the fourth year in a row.
In the Teen division, first runner-up went to Rachel Bell, sister of Miss Utah USA 2012 Kendyl Bell. 2015 semi-finalist Madelin Kellogg placed second runner-up. Third runner-up was Kelsy Patrick, a runner-up in Idaho in 2013 and two-time first runner-up Dasha Semina placed fourth runner-up this year.
As there were only 11 contestants in the Teen division, all the contestants were called as semi-finalists.
