As a whole – the Miss Indiana Organization is making great strides…
This year, they’ll have a record breaking 35 contestants vying for the title of Miss Indiana! Pretty incredible when you consider the contestant totals were down in the teens back in the 90’s. Plus, this is their 5th year in a row with 30+ contestants at the state level! That’s the kind of positive growth that “lifts all ships” and will make Indiana contestants strong contenders for the Miss America crown in the future!
This year’s Miss Indiana, Audra Casterline, certainly made a positive showing at Miss America – bringing back a Non-Finalist Talent Award after her time in Atlantic City. You can see her talent in the clip below… But beware… This video is an awesome example of EFS… Also known as “Enthusiastic Familial Support” and it might be a bit easier to listen to the video, rather than watching it (PS – #JunkiesLoveEFS). 🙂
Audra has been busy traveling the state of Indiana, talking about her platform called, “Food For Thought: Increasing Awareness of Eating Disorders”. And in a recent press release, Audra praised the partnership she had with CITGO – the company who helped make her appearances possible.
“As an anorexia survivor, I’m familiar with the eating disorder warning signs and symptoms that aren’t commonly known. CITGO and Johnson Petroleum allowed me to share my story with local teens and encourage increased awareness that can also lead to prevention.”
Audra’s next goal is to become a Physician’s Assistant, using the scholarship money she’s earned from the Miss America program. We know she’ll continue to share her story of strength of overcoming anorexia and believe her greatest impact on those around her, is yet to come. 🙂
