FOR the second year in a row the Miss Teen Australia was successfully held in Fiji with 19-year-old Alia Burt winning the 2012 crown at the Volivoli Beach Resort, Rakiraki last night.

Ms Burt beat 10 contestants to the crown and will represent Australia at next year's Miss Australia Pageant.

An emotional Ms Burt said she didn't expect to win because of the tough competition.

"All the girls were absolutely stunning," Ms Burt said. It's so amazing to win the top award, I'm lost for words but I'm grateful that it has happened to me."

"I thank the organisers of the show, my parents and of course the friendly staff of the Volivoli Beach Resort."

Fiji's beautiful scenery and its friendly people prompted the organisers to have the event in Fiji again this year.

"This is the second time we are coming to Fiji and this is the ninth year we have been running the event," Miss Teen Australia chief executive officer Gavin Dooley said. "We are grateful to host this year's event at Volivoli Beach Resort and we will be back next year." He said hosting the event outside Australia was to have a different experience from previous years.
