Alayna Westcom did Vermont proud…
After competing for SEVEN YEARS, Alayna learned the best way to compete in a pageant, is to just be yourself! That always sounds easy, but in reality, it can be really difficult to break out from what’s considered “normal” – in order to “do you” instead.
Case in point… Alayna was a dancer for several years, before trying something new: A Science Experiment. Fast forward a few years and suddenly, Alayna wins Miss Vermont and then realizes she’s about to be the first person to conduct a Science Experiment on the Miss America stage! Her podcast explains her thoughts at the time… And you can listen here…
Imagine the validation that came when Alayna was awarded a $5000 STEM award and a $1000 for a Non-Finalist Talent Award at Miss America! And here’s something for you… When it comes to Miss America contestants, only eight other ladies went home with more scholarship money than Alayna did ($9000 total)! That’s right – EIGHT! It just goes to show that when you “do you” – you’ll NEVER go wrong!
Alayna went on to have a Fabulous year in Vermont – She worked her tail off performing various science experiments to students across the state. She talked about the importance of STEM fields of study and STEM careers. And she inspired ladies all across the country to just be themselves when competing in a pageant.
Congrats Alayna on your wonderful performance at Miss America – and your year as Miss Vermont! We know you’ve made an impact that will long out-last the 365 days you’ve worn the crown 🙂
