OSHKOSH, Wisconsin - It was an exciting night for the Miss Wisconsin Scholarship Competition on Saturday in Oshkosh.
Miss Rock River Valley Alyssa Bohm was crowned Miss Wisconsin and will travel to the Miss America Competition. The open Rock River Valley competition was held earlier this year in Beloit.
Bohm was one of 24 women competing for the crown. She is from Racine.
According to the Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper, Bohm has competed for five years and won four titles in the statewide Miss Wisconsin competition. This year was her last chance to compete for the Miss Wisconsin title because she reaches age 25 at the end of July, the cut-off for entering, according to the Northwestern. Bohm has been employed as a special education teacher.
Beloit's own Abby Miller, crowned as Miss Beloit in March, placed in the Top 10 of the competition, winning a $500 scholarship.
Abby Miller is the daughter of Michele Miller and Mark Froese.
Miss Beloit's Outstanding Teen Allison Hoffman competed for Miss Wisconsin's Outstanding Teen on Friday. She won Non-finalist Evening Wear/On-stage Question for a $100 scholarship.
Allison Hoffman is the daughter of Dave Hoffman and Marie Chroninger.
Miss Onalaska's Outstanding Teen, Savannah Horstman, won the teen portion of the competition and will travel to the Miss America Outstanding Teen Competition.
Former Miss Beloit and Miss Wisconsin 1992 Stephanie Klett was part of the program at Saturday night's competition, welcoming the crowd and presenting the Travel Wisconsin promotional video featuring ex-Green Bay Packers great Donald Driver. Klett served for eight years as secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, which produces the Travel Wisconsin promotional materials. She left the position in January, completing eight years in office.
