Sonntag Teacher Earns Title of Mrs. Collin County

Jan 20, 2015

As a young girl, Anna Marie Omota always thought that pageants looked like fun but she never attempted to participate. Omota’s husband was the person who encouraged his lovely wife to apply for Mrs. Collin County. Now he is married to a titleholder who will soon compete for the title of Mrs. Texas International.

Omota teaches functional academics at Sonntag and hopes to win the Mrs. Texas title to continue to bring awareness to issues faced by special needs children and to support creating meaningful life experiences for them. She is also currently working with Frisco ISD to promote Go Red for Women, another very worthy project supported by the International Pageant System.

The International Pageant System holds all sorts of pageants throughout Texas and the nation. This pageant system puts emphasis on the contestant’s platform and what she wants to accomplish with her title, Omota explained. Though she will also compete in evening gown and fitness wear, 50 percent of the judging involves the interview process. "Thankfully there is no talent portion of the Mrs. Texas,” Omota said.

As a teacher, Omota is already a dedicated advocate for persons with special needs. Teaching is her priority. With the title of Mrs. Collin County, she has been able to expand the audience she reaches to educate and inform the public about the wonderful opportunities being offered to special needs children. Now she can inspire all of FISD, as well.
