The reigning 2012 Miss Teen Minnesota is Gabby Taylor of Stillwater. As Miss Teen Minnesota, Gabby speaks out on "Accidents Hurt, Safety Doesn't." On Dec. 17, 2009, Gabby's life changed in an instant when she lost the use of her right arm when it was paralyzed due to a cheerleading accident.

Gabby says what happened to her could happen to anyone involved in extra-curricular sports. She wants to educate students and coaches on injury prevention and safety awareness. For more information, visit
