BURRILLVILLE – Burrillville native Jenna Denault says that in high school, people always told her she should try modeling.
But living in the northeast corner of the country, the 2014 graduate from Burrillville High School says she came across few opportunities to try.
Around two years ago, Denault decided to chase her dream and relocated to Indian Harbor Beach, Florida, where she began modeling part time.
Now, she’s been chosen to compete to become a cover model for Jetset Magazine. The publication describes itself as the “#1 publication of the ultra wealthy” and “a go to resource for all things luxury.”
Denault will be competing with hundreds of women for the exclusive title, which comes with a prize of $50,000, and the chance to experience the “Jetset lifestyle,” with “private jets, high-profile events, and the chance to take part in luxury experiences that are often only available to the ultra-rich.”
The “Miss Jetset” contest has also donated a total of more than $450,000 to The B+ Foundation, a non-profit organization which helps children and their families dealing with pediatric cancer.
The contestant, who goes by “Jenna Elizabeth,” in her entry, says she spotted the competition online, and submitted her application just before the deadline.
“It’s a huge competition they do every year,” said Denault, noting that she likes the charity aspect. “It’s a beautiful thing. You help charity, and families and children out, and you get the opportunity of a lifetime,” she said.
The first elimination round begins on Tuesday, Feb. 19, with public voting starting at 4 p.m. EST. Denault is one of 52 girls competing in “South Group 11.”
