Best of Luck to the Miss Clayland Program Tonight!

Tonight in Uhrichsville the always lovely Allie Krucek will crown a new Miss Clayland! This year at Miss Ohio Allie was a Top 10 Semifinalist. [Right: Allie performs her lyrical dance at Miss Ohio to "Oh so quiet." It was oh so cute!] The “Clayland Crew” is known for well prepared, successful contestants at Miss Ohio, and giving great scholarships. This year the winner will receive $2250, 1st Runner-up will get $400, the Talent, Interview and Community Service Award winners will each receive $200 and excitingly, each non-finalist will also receive $200!

Thus, it is sad and shocking that only seven women are competing.
They are:

Amy Allen is a vocalist who works with Habitat for Humanity. She holds a Master in Business Administration from Mount Vernon Nazarene. Amy is no stranger to the pageant system, having won many Spirit awards. [This season: Amy won the Spirit Award at Miss Greater Cleveland/ Open City and competed at Miss Lake Erie/ Northern Ohio.]

Ashley Bowman was listed in contestant paperwork, but she does not have a CMN donation page. She is a high schooler who advocates Demolishing Domestic Violence. [This is Ashley's first pageant of the season.]

Grace Caudill studies International Relations, Diplomacy and Business Administration at Ohio State University. In 2006 she was 3rd Runner-up at Miss West Central Ohio where she sang and accompanied herself on the piano; her platform was Youth Self-esteem. [This is Grace's first local pageant of the season.]

Erica Gelhaus is a Music Performance major at Otterbein College. She performs opera for her talent and her platform is “Turning the page for youth literacy.” In her first attempt at Miss Ohio (as Miss Lake Festival) Erica won a preliminary Talent Award and was named 1st Runner-up. She then represented the buckeye state at the National Sweetheart Pageant where she won both preliminary Talent and Swimsuit, and brought home the crown! [This is Erica’s first local pageant of the season.]

Karissa Martin studies Music and Communications at West Liberty State College. She is a vocalist; her platform issue is Skin Cancer Awareness. In her first try at Miss Ohio this summer she was named 2nd Runner-up as Miss Scioto Valley. [This season: Karissa competed at Miss Lake Erie/ Northern Ohio and was 2nd RU at Miss North East Ohio.]

April O’Brien is a vocalist who attends Bethany College. Her platform is Body Confidence in Young Women. [This season: April competed at Miss North East Ohio.]

Megan Wombacker is an Accounting major and Marketing and Management minor at Kent State University, with plans to go into their MBA program. She is a tap dancer who advocates Vision Awareness. [This season: Megan has competed at Miss Greater Cleveland/ Open City, Miss Lake Erie/ Northern Ohio and Miss North East Ohio.]
