Dear Pageant Family,
The ladies who hold titles across the state, are the faces of Miss America in their communities. Since Miss America cannot possibly visit every community in the country during her year of service, we look to our Local Title Holders to be Miss America in her community. Thank you to all of our talented, intelligent and beautiful title holders for your year of service to not only the Miss Minnesota Scholarship Program, but to the Miss America Organization. We are very proud of each of you and your accomplishments.
The Miss Minnesota Scholarship Pageant is pleased to announce our participation in the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Program. This is a worldwide award program founded in the UK in 1956 by the Duke of Edinburgh. Today, over 8 million young people have participated in the award in over 140 countries. Minnesota is one of 45 participating states in the U.S. Follow this link for more information and to enroll today!
This year Gretchen celebrates her Silver Anniversary as Miss America 1989. Enjoy her talent performance that won her this prestigious title!
We have put together a photo gallery of Rebecca's Miss America experience since she arrived just after Labor Day. It has been non-stop for the 53 contestants, with the added excitement of the pageant returning to its roots in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
We would like to wish Rebecca congratulations on winning a Talent Preliminary Award on night two of prelims for her performance of "Scherzo - Tarantella" by Henri Wieniawski. She will recieve a $2000 educational scholarship from the Miss America Organization. She was also honored to be 4th runner up to Miss America, and won an additional $10,000 educational scholarship. Minnesota is so proud!
