Miss Chain of Lakes' Outstanding Teen 2017, Eden Webb
- Eden's platform, Open Hearts, Open Homes: Helping Children in Foster Care, was demonstrated by creating activities to thank foster families and provide support with fun events. She recognizes how hard it can be for children in the foster care system to be moved from one place to another, without much control over their circumstance. But it can also be challenging for the foster families, who open their homes to help these children. For that reason, Eden organized many events to provide thank you notes to all the foster families in Carver County. She organized and led a face painting booth at a holiday party for foster families. She has helped by babysitting and led a drive to collect bags for children in foster care to carry their belongings.
- Eden is in National Honor Society at Minnetonka High School. She stays active in dance, theater and choir. She loves photography and won an award in the Mountain Home Photography contest.
- Congratulations to Eden for winning first runner up at the state competition in 2017.
- Congratulations on winning the state title, talent and evening gown prelim competitions in 2018!

Miss Chain of Lakes' Outstanding Teen 2015, Rachel Weyandt
Rachel Weyandt was the first Miss Chain of Lakes' Outstanding Teen! Her platform, Foster Care to Adoption, played the biggest role in her life. She made an impact on not only foster children, but their foster families as well. She plans to do PSEO and get some college credit in high school, attend college and major in either psychiatry or law.
She is a home schooled sophomore and is involved in attending and volunteering at church, dance, piano, shopping and photography! A lot of her time, though, is helping with her adopted sister and foster sister.
Congratulations to Rachel for winning the title of Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen 2015 as well as the Overall Talent Award!
