The Miss Teen USA competition is getting an update.

The Miss Universe organization announced earlier this week, that the Teen pageant will no longer include a swimsuit competition.   Instead, the contestants will be judged in athletic wear.

The move is pretty consistent with the re-branding of the Miss Universe Organization.  The Director for the pageant says that it is a great way to celebrate the active lives that so many young women lead and set a strong example to young girls.

One spokesperson said, that this could cause more parents to be open to their daughters an event like this.
