Many people have become familiar with pageants through the popular TLC reality show, "Toddlers & Tiaras," but Oberst and Johnson say those pageants are not like the pageants they do.
"Those pageants are very fake," Oberst said. "Ours are more about natural beauty. They judge you on overall natural beauty, poise and how you present yourself."
"It's not about what you say, it's about how you say it," added Johnson, regarding pageants' interview and onstage question portions. "You have to have confidence."
That's not always easy, though.
"I was extremely nervous before my pageant," Johnson said. "I didn't know what to expect."
"I still get a little nervous before pageants, but I know that I'll have fun no matter what happens," Oberst said. "The key is to just be yourself."
Oberst's advice to teens who want to start doing pageants is, "Be yourself, be confident and have fun."
