Miss Washington chases title of Miss America

Posted: Updated:

Alicia Cooper, a Skyview High School graduate is getting ready to compete in the Miss America pageant. She says the title would help her inspire young women at a national level.

Cooper was crowned Miss Washington in July. It was a long time coming for the Washington State University Student who began singing and dancing at the age of three. She quickly fell in love with tap dance though, and showcases her talent at local pageants.

Cooper says the Miss America organization has given her the chance to work with the Seattle Children’s Hospital. She says the non-profit has taught her invaluable interview skills and helped her pay for her undergraduate degree.

Alicia will compete at Miss America in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The preliminary competition begins on Sept. 6. Miss America will be crowned on Sept. 11.

You can help Alicia make it to the top 15 by voting for “America’s Choice." Go to MissAmerica.org and find Miss Washington.
