This posting about this year's tallest and shortest Miss America contestant yielded a reply that it was Miss Nebraska (the tallest at 6'0") and Miss Indiana (the shortest at 5'0").
http://www.voy.com/229344/2/241780.html

I am curious to know, who were the All-time tallest and shortest who competed at Miss America in Atlantic City and/or Las Vegas?

As for tallest, which were the tallest and who else were equal or taller then these three:

North Carolina 1963, Jeanne Swanner
New York 1980, Cheryl Flannigan
Montana 1988, Rebecca (Becky) McRea
Nebraska 2014, Megan Swanson

And no idea about the shortest--besides maybe Miss Connecticut 1980,Jeanne Caruso, who had the bad luck of standing next to towering but beautiful Miss New York, Cheryl Flannigan in the top ten of the 1980 Miss America pageant...producers did not think about the appearance of the shortest and tallest contestant in the top ten standing next to each other, that made Cheryl look all the more tall, and Jeanne more petite. Remember that embarrassment?

Who else (and in what order) were the tallest and shortest contestants from 1921 to 2014 (and their height if known for sure)??

Date Posted: 03:09:10 10/17/14 Fri


Local pageant season is in full swing and the Miss America Organization (MAO) has provided strict guidelines for crown etiquette. What is appropriate etiquette for visiting queens attending local pageants?

All MISS, TEEN and PRINCESS titleholders affiliated with MAO are invited to attend a local Miss America preliminary pageant for free - provided they are wearing their current official MAO Crown & Sash.

Titleholders in national pageant systems not affiliated with MAO (Ex: Miss USA/Universe, International, United States, NAM, etc.) are welcome to attend the pageant by purchasing a ticket. These same non-Miss America affiliates are not allowed to wear a crown since there is no connection with MAO. Wearing a sash is optional.

Local community princesses and queens not affiliated with MAO, and not affiliated with a national pageant system are welcome to wear their crown & sash, but must pay for their ticket.

Some PBS stations are broadcasting a production of Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess" recorded live from San Francisco Opera.

The role of Clara is sung by Angel Blue, former contestant in CA and NV. Clara opens the show with "Summertime."

I agree with Ernie on how the pageant outcome should a bit more understandable to the public. Here is how I think we can, in a realistic way, make that happen.

Opening- There is something so exciting about seeing all the contestants dancing onstage. A fun opening number with lots of choreography to a mix-up of the hottest hits during that time would be amazing.

Intros- Each contestant will introduce herself and her major(with the name of her College on the screen under her title so she won't have to say it) without the cheesy "From the state..." parts.Stating their majors would show how smart and accomplished they are. If the cheesy intros were cut out that would leave so much more time, at least 10-15 minutes, for something else in the show.

Semifinalists- I do agree that a top 15 should be kept, but only a top 15. Not a top 16. No gimmicks . Give the America's choice winner a prize package or something. As each top 15 semifinalist is called, show a snip it of a good moment of that contestant in interview, talking about how she has benefited from the MAO. That way there will be diverse responses instead of just focusing on scholarship amount, many will state scholarship amount they've received, Confidence growth, perseverance, Health and fitness development, impact of platforms, and so many other ways.

Top 15 competes in swimsuit, then announce the top 10 from there. Let the top 10 compete in talent. It does not have to always go Swimsuit, Evening gown, then talent. Many state pageant hold talent in the middle and it works out fine. After talent, let the top 10 compete in Evening gown.

After EG, the top 10 will change into their cocktail/interview dresses for OSQ. From the top 10, pull the top five, ask them the questions, competition over. Easy. Not too many confusing gimmicks, eliminations, and other stupid stuff. Miss America is not a reality show. The Oscar's and the Tony's are iconic award shows that are modern, but still have a way of keeping their class and elegance of their shows in tact, and their ratings are wonderful. Let Miss America do the same.

Since it was stated that these are one-year appointments does that mean that a different set of states will be chosen next year or only that a different person will represent the same states already chosen?

I have loved Miss America since I was five years old. I am now 47 and it sickens me to see what it has become.

We had 2 locals in Kentucky this past weekend. Last year the numbers resulted in 6 queens crowned for the exact same 2 locals. This year only 2 queens crowned. Very unfortunate.

I would LOVE it if Mallory would write a book or at least give a tell-all on her blog. Caressa Cameron is also another former I would love to hear from! Katie Stam is also another one who I would love to hear about her reign. Who do you want to hear from?

Lt. Governor Owen leading trade, cultural and friendship mission to Shantou


Lt. Governor Brad Owen leaves early Thursday for Shantou, joining a group of Seattle area business leaders seeking to invite more trade with the city as part of the “Washington State Day in Shantou” event this weekend in the southeastern China city.


Miss Washington Kailee Dunn is one of the delegates on the mission to Shantou

A number of Washington educators are also joining the Owen-led delegation, including state schools Superintendent Randy Dorn, who is incorporating the stop in Shantou as part of a longer mission. Miss Washington Kailee Dunn, who was invited to attend by the Washington State Day in Shantou Committee, also will be along.

Lt. Governor Owen will join Shantou Mayor Zhen Renhao in giving opening remarks, along with Tan Tho Tien, president of the Seattle-Shantou Chamber of Commerce and Paul Baldwin, chief of the outreach unit of the U.S. Consulate in Shantou.

The lieutenant governor will also make a presentation highlighting several reasons to invest in Washington, followed by a presentation by Bill Stafford, past president of the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle.

Dunn, a native of the Tri-Cities area and graduate of Eastern Washington University, will provide a detailed overview of Washington state agricultural products as part of her presentation on the second day of the event. She has also agreed to share her experiences on the lieutenant governor’s mission blog, “Overseas with Lt. Governor Brad Owen.”

Alan Burke, executive director of the Washington State School Directors Association will give an overview of Washington state education. Other presentations will focus on real estate investment and tourism. Exhibits showcasing Washington products and services will also be on display.

“This mission continues our state’s efforts to build stronger business, friendship and cultural ties with the Pacific Rim,” said Owen. As with his past missions, the lieutenant governor’s expenses are being covered by his hosts.

Located on the eastern coast of the Guangdong Province, Shantou is one of five so-called Special Economic Zones in China with more free-market oriented economic policies to encourage global trade. The city covers an area of 2,064 square kilometers (798 square miles) and has a resident population of about 5.5 million.

Washington State Day in Shantou is the third of a series of “Washington State Day” events organized in China to promote state exports. The earlier two were in 2005 and 2011, both in Yangzhou. The term “Washington State Day” was first coined by Jeffrey Pang, former chair of the Kent-Yangzhou Sister City Committee. Pang co-organized this week’s mission with Seattle area business woman May Wan.

Tours of schools and Shantou University are also on tap for the delegation on their final day in the city as the lieutenant governor always makes a point of visiting schools during his overseas missions.
