My goal has always been to promote a program we can all celebrate — a program that unites the community and brings opportunity to the young women of Utah. With each year, sponsors, families, and businesses have come together to help this program grow. In doing so they have changed the lives of our contestants, and for that I cannot thank the Silver State enough! It makes me proud to show the country what Nevada is made of.
