Miss America is one of the largest educational scholarship opportunities for women in the US. Contestants compete based on their beauty, poise, and style but also their talent and their social "platform."
Brooke's talent is singing and her platform is "Music - the building block of education." The Miss America national platform financially supports the Children's Miracle Network. Brooke has volunteered weekly all year at Gillette Hospital in St. Paul which is one of 170 hospitals nationwide which directly benefits from the Children's Miracle Network. Miss Minnesota has raised over $12,200 for that charity.
Cheer Miss Minnesota on to win the Miss America crown live on TV channel TLC on Saturday, January 30 at 7 PM central standard time! Our family wishes our beautiful and talented neighbor all the best in her quest!
