Well, we did it again!
BACK TO BACK STATE WINNERS! We are sooooo proud of Emma and Angelina! Their hard work and dedication payed off as they were crowned Miss Alaska’s Outstanding Teen and Miss Alaska 2017!
This was such an amazing year at Miss Alaska. Each and every girl that stepped foot onto that stage was ready to take on the job of a state titleholder, and we are so proud of every contestant. What an amazing experience to be able to watch this years class of girls act with kindness, laughter, and professionalism throughout the week. As part of the production team, I can honestly say these girls brought their A game.
Our beautiful Emma walked away with the talent and fitness awards ( I know there were a few others but I can’t seem to find which ones) along with the crown. She is heading to Miss America’s Outstanding Teen the end of July and we wish her the best of luck there!
Angelina’s story is unique and special. As she was named 1st runner up at our pageant in January, Angelina graciously filled the title of Miss Anchorage just 2 months prior to Miss Alaska. Miss Anchorage is has a unique trip every July to Chitose Japan in conjunction with the Sister Cities Commission. We are responsible for fundraising for that trip, and she did not shy away from that task. Along with that, she also was preparing to compete at Miss Alaska! Not only did she listen to our advice, she made time and huge efforts in aligning practices with us, putting in work on her talent, modeling, and platform, and spent countless hours prepping for her interview. Her work paid off, and we are ECSTATIC to see her on that iconic Miss America Stage in September!
We would also like to make a special shout out to Ellie Gottstein ( Miss Cook Inlet 2016). You see, once you become one of our girls you stay one of our girls. She was awarded CMN Miracle Maker, People’s Choice, Top Ticket Sales, Fitness, Talent, and 1st Runner up to Miss Alaska. We love you dearly and are so proud of all you accomplished this year!
Now with all that said, this brings me to our next item of business, we will not be crowning new titleholders, due to the fact that we have moved up our pageant!
