After an extensive nationwide search that took over several months, had over 7000 entries and received over 42,000 votes, the L.e.i. Jeans/Teen Vogue competition to find the new L.e.i Model Citizen is over. 

The grand prize winner, and all around lucky girl, is Alexandra Brooks (center). Along with the voting public, Alexandra was handpicked by judges Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley, designer Rachel Roy, model Chanel Iman and model Ali Michael for "best exemplify[ing] the tenets of L.e.i.-life, energy and intelligence."

Alexandra walks away with a $100,000 scholarship for college, an internship at Teen Vogue, an appearance in L.e.i.'s Fall 2010 national advertising campaign, a fashion makeover, a complete L.e.i wardrobe and a trip to LA to attend Teen Vogue's "Young Hollywood" party. Wow!

Also receiving prizes are second and third place winners, Jazzlyn Marae (right) and Amy Wilson (left) respectively.
