The reigning Miss Idaho is Genevieve Nutting, a former Miss Idaho Outstanding Teen and our favorite queen with a stuffed animal at her disposal!
‘Spuddy Buddy’ was often found to be everywhere she was (which meant a LOT of travel for the little guy). We also loved how Genevieve was such an ardent supporter of Girl Scouts – which translated into her receiving the Four Points Award at Miss America for her ability to represent Style, Service, Scholarship and Success. Congrats Genevieve!!! 🙂
So what do we know about the Miss Idaho 2012 competition? Well… let’s see…
Idaho History : Idaho is another state who is without a Miss America… However Sadie Quigley was a non-finalist Talent winner in 2008.
Best Research Tool: Well… it wasn’t easy, but we finally found a list of who is competing in the pageant here… We never did see any individual head-shots of 2012 contestants…but you can see 2011 head-shots on the Miss Idaho site, just in case you missed last year’s event! 🙂 **** UPDATE**** Everything you need is on the Idaho Facebook page – just click here!!! 🙂
Who to Watch: Again – without head-shots, we’re pretty much at the mercy of the internet telling us who’s finished where in previous years… and even that’s pretty sketchy. 20 girls competing this year – here’s our best picks…
Whitney Wood – 1st runner up in ’11… great head-shot from ’11
Kristina Nye – Most intriguing contestant… she brought back the Idaho Junior Miss program (now Distinguished Young Woman of the Year) by volunteering to do it! The first year there were 7 contestants, this year there’s 20 (she’s been doing it 4 years total – all while she’s in college!) and they gave away $8000 in scholarship money this year! Plus, she’s really pretty. 🙂
Shalese Kofoed – strong vocalist, former YWotYear contestant… we’re also guessing she’s related to Kiley Kofoed, Miss Idaho ’10
Kristen Tatillin – prelim swimsuit winner in ’10, repeat contestant in ’11 (missing details regarding ’11)
That’s our best shot! Wishing all the contestants at Miss Idaho lots of Junkie Love!!! 🙂
