INDIAN HILL, OH (FOX19) - An Indian Hill teen has been crowned the new Miss Teen Ohio International 2009.

Jessica Byington is freshman at Miami University with a 4.0 GPA.

Delegates from across the state of Ohio gathered to compete in Interview, Physical Fitness, Fashion Wear, and Evening Gown competition. Byington ended up sweeping every category from Best in Fashion to the Miss Congeniality award, and ended with her winning the coveted crown.

Miss Byington, who was diagnosed with dyslexia at the age of seven, plans to spend much of her reign promoting early detection, diagnosis, and proper intervention of dyslexia so that  no child ever has to feel inferior as she once did.
