Jessie Allen will travel to Atlantic City in September to represent Wyoming at the Miss America Pageant.

Allen was crowned Miss Wyoming on Saturday, according to pageant officials. She entered the pageant as Miss Fremont County.

Allen was preliminary winner in the interview, evening gown and swimsuit competitions.

Julia Kendrix was named first runner-up; and Jessica Dyk was second runner-up. Dyk was also named winner of the talent competition.

Allen, 24, is a graduate of the University of Wyoming who plans to earn a master’s degree in business administration with an eye on eventually managing her family’s ranch.

Her pageant platform is “Getting Children Active Outdoors,” and her talent is in contemporary dance.

This was her third Miss Wyoming pageant.

If she is crowned Miss America, she will become the first Miss Wyoming to win the national pageant title. The most-recent state contestant to finish as a semi-finalist at the Miss America Pageant was Miss Wyoming 2012 Lexie Madden, who was third runner-up.

Also on Saturday, Addison Treesh was crowned Miss Wyoming’s Outstanding Teen.

She travels to Orlando, Florida later this summer to compete in the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Pageant.

The teen pageant is the younger-sister competition to the Miss America Pageant, and is for girls ages 13-17 years.

Treesh, 14, is a dancer.
