I've started the Miss America 2018 (2017 state winners) list. It is at http://wp.me/P20I1i-3ER.

Hopefully, there will be more names added after tonight's contests. I'm crossing my fingers for carnation's niece.

Here's my list of Greek women who've won their state titles so far…and it includes a sister of mine!

Miss Alabama - Jessica Procter, Alpha Gamma Delta (University of Alabama)
Miss Arkansas - Maggie Benton, Chi Omega (University of Arkansas)
Miss Delaware - Chelsea Bruce, Alpha Phi (University of Delaware)
Miss Idaho - Taylor Lance, Alpha Chi Omega (Boise State University)
Miss Michigan - Heather Kendrick, Sigma Alpha Iota (University of Michigan)
Miss Nebraska - Allison Tietjen, Alpha Phi (University of Nebraska-Lincoln)
Miss North Dakota - Cara Mund, Kappa Delta (Brown University)
Miss South Dakota - Miranda Mack, Chi Omega (South Dakota State)
Miss Wisconsin - McKenna Collins, Alpha Phi (University of Wisconsin-Madison)*

*The most recent info I could find for this was an interview with Miss Collins from 2014, which was her freshman year, where she mentioned that she had joined Alpha Phi.

Makes sense, with not having anything more recent. My handwritten list has a question mark by it for that reason as well. Thanks for confirming, Fran!

I also found Miss Illinois Abby Foster is a Delta Zeta! This was on her chapter's instagram.

Good detective work! So many state contests are on Saturday night, in the middle of the Pi Phi convention. It would be wonderful if the contestants would just list their affiliations in their bios!

LOL, it would certainly make our sleuthing easier, wouldn't it? I don't mind having to dig a little for info, though. Enjoy your convention!

Years ago when I owned a few 1950's/60's Miss America program VHS tapes it made my day to hear a broadcast announcer mention a contestant's sorority affiliation, usually along with her college and a favorite pet's name. The winner's greek letters were often mentioned again during her crowning moment.

Nowadays any Miss America contestant's bio is so much stronger than just her greek letters!

From tonight's results…still haven't heard who is Miss Oregon or Miss Puerto Rico yet.

Miss Florida - Sara Zeng, Alpha Chi Omega alumna, Florida State University
Miss Texas - Margana Wood, Zeta Tau Alpha, University of Texas-Austin
Miss Washington - Nicole Renard, Chapman University (CA)

And I'm gonna double check previous mentions to see if my sleuthing has found any that haven't made Fran's list or this thread!

Yes, that's her chapter.

I am hoping I've uncovered them all, but there seems to always be one who is flying under the radar.

17 of 51 contestants (including Miss D.C., 52 if there's also a Miss Puerto Rico).
That's ONE THIRD of the competitors who are Greek (NPC)!
