Miss Contestants

People's Choice Award Online Voting!

At this year’s pageant we are holding a special online competition called the People’s Choice! We will be collecting your votes with the help of our voting partner, The Pageant Planet, for your favorite contestant for the People’s Choice in both the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA divisions. This year, the People’s Choice Winners will be guaranteed a spot as a semi-finalist in the Pageant Finals! Voting will take place online until 4pm CDT on Sunday, April 25th. The winners of the People’s Choice for each division will be revealed during the announcement of the semi-finalists as well as recognized during the awards portion near the end of the Pageant Finals!

During this year’s pageant, if the contestant numbers dictate, it may be decided by the judging panel to allow all the state contestants to advance to the Pageant Finals. If so, the winners of the People’s Choice voting will still be announced at the start of the Pageant Finals as well as recognized during the awards portion near the end of the show.

Thank you to my parents, siblings, nephews, aunts, uncles, and grandparents for your amazing love and support! Thank you to Tyler for being an awesome hype man and the best boyfriend!

Destiny C.
I want to first thank the two people who have supported me in not only this pageant journey, but also in my everyday life. I have become the woman that I am today, because of the continuous support and love from my parents. I could not have asked for better role models to show me that if I want something, then I better go out and get it now, because life doesn't wait for anyone. I also want to thank my wonderful boyfriend for always pushing me to ditch my comfort zone, and make everyday the best day that it can be. Finally, I want to thank all of my amazing family and friends for cheering me on through the years. It has meant the world to me to have every single one of you by my side. You make my dreams come true. Forever grateful, Destiny

Competing for this opportunity takes a village and a strong team. Cal Schaefer & Mike Haugen: thank you for being my sponsors! I have had quite the crew of loved ones and friends support me... thank you guys so much! To my family: you will never know how grateful I am for you. And Mom & Dad: Thank you for being in that audience & supporting my dream to compete at Miss USA. I don't think any of us expected the fire that would be lit within me when I was crowned Miss ND Teen USA 12 years ago, but man this journey with you two by my side... has made me the luckiest girl in the world.
