Hannah Grau was Miss Virginia Teen USA 2022



A native of Fredericksburg, Hannah Grau was crowned Miss Virginia Teen USA on 16 April 2022 and represented Virginia at the Miss Teen USA 2022 pageant in Reno, Nevada. As a military kid, Hannah is passionate about spreading her initiative “Chalk About Positivity” which stems from Giving Tuesday Military, for which she is a youth ambassador. Her goal is to spread intentional acts of kindness, one act at a time.
