Tiffany Amariuta, the nine-year-old daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Ion Amariuta from Hasbruck Heights, won the prestigious 2003 Pre-Teen New Jersey Junior Division Title. Tiffany will hold this title for a full year. As the Titleholder, Tiffany has the honor of representing the State of New Jersey throughout the year and compete next year for the title of "2004 Pre-Teen America".
The competition was heavily an academic contest and not a beauty pageant. In addition to her academic achievements and on premises tests and interviews, Tiffany was judged on school honors received, volunteer service, musical talent and the ability to speak and answer questions in front of a large audience. In addition to winning the top title, Tiffany has received her Title Sash, a medal, her official Title Jacket, four trophies, a savings bond as well as funds for her travel to other states as a representative of the State of New Jersey.
