After a week of preliminary competition, on stage and with private interviews, numerous events and even a trip to Universal Studios, the Miss America competition culminated with its Final Night streamed live online where our very own Miss Arkansas Cori Keller was named a Top 11 Semi-Finalist. “It has been the biggest honor of my life to represent my home state at Miss America.” She says that hearing her name called on the Miss America stage after 17 years of involvement with the Miss America Opportunity is a dream come true. “I am so thankful for the State of Arkansas, my hometown and supporters for their continued dedication to me and the Miss Arkansas Organization.” Cori has returned home to Arkansas and hit the ground running promoting this organization, and her Community Service Initiative “Feeding the Future: Collaborative Solutions to Hunger,” and serving as an Ambassador for the American Heart Association.
Miss Colorado Madison Marsh, a native of Fort Smith, was crowned Miss America 2024. Miss New York Amelia Collins, a native of Jonesboro and former Arkansas’ Teen contestant finished as a Top 11 Semi-Finalist as well.
