Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen 2021 – Eve VandenHeuvel

Eve Vanden Heuvel, is making a difference as Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen with her social impact initiative: Thank You from the Heart-Thanking Our Veterans. Thank You From the Heart is an online or in-person presentation to help educate our youth on who veterans are, why we should thank them and how we can thank them. School-age children then make heartfelt “Thank You for your service cards” that are then shared with area veterans. Eve has partnered with and helped Wisconsin Veterans Village, US Patriots Athletics, Vets-N-Friends, and Mission 22, just to name a few. Most recently, she partnered with Heather French Henry, Miss America 2000 and Operation Waverly, which was part of the White Christmas event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. This outreach provided an opportunity where MANY cards were made to be delivered to our hospitalized veterans on February 14 for “National Salute to Veterans Patients”.Eve has been a 4-time winner of the Patriotism Reigns Essay Scholarship awarded at Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen for her commitment to patriotism and our veterans. She was the overall lifestyle and fitness winner at Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen. She has had 11 years of piano training. Eve was a 4-time National qualifier for Forensics. Currently, Eve is a freshman at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas double majoring in Theology and Secondary Education. She aspires to become a catholic high school theology teacher. She is an advocate for Christ via Tic-Toc with 90K followers. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, reading, painting, and trying cheese curds at different restaurants. Her favorite quote: In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love. ~Mother Teresa
