Miss Wyoming Winners

By  | 

The winner of Miss Wyoming U.S.A. was Callie Bishop, and the winner of Miss Wyoming Teen U.S.A. is Mackenzie Kern.

Competition started out with 35 contestants Saturday.

Contestants were divided into different groups such as teens between 13 – 18 years of age.

They were also separated in the age group if 19 – 27year olds, all competing for the Miss Wyoming title.

Six judges gave scores and each girl went through a total of 2 to 3 hour interviews.

Saturday night, teens did active wear, Misses did swimsuit contests, and both groups did evening gowns.

From there, judges eliminated half the teens.

But for the other group, there weren’t enough people, so all got kept for semi-finals.

Contestants were brought down to 5 finalists on Sunday.

They each answered a single question, and after that, the winners were chosen.

"I feel absolutely amazing. I can't believe I'm the next Miss Wyoming Teen USA. I'm going to miss teen USA. This is something I've worked so hard for the past four years, and it's finally a dream come true,” said Mackenzie Kern, Miss Wyoming Teen U.S.A.

"Extremely honored. It's a goal of mine that I've been working on for almost a decade now, since I won Miss Teen USA. And I cannot wait to start the training, and grow this year, and represent our state,” said Callie Bishop, Miss Wyoming U.S.A.

Judges said they had an amazing experience, meeting these inspirational women.

"Being a judge was a once in a lifetime opportunity, I think I walked in with some assumptions you could say about these kind of pageants, but completely gone these women are all amazing, they all have amazing accomplishments, makes me start thinking that whenever I have a kid, she needs to do this,” said News 13's Meteorologist Justin Roth, a judge.
