Miss K-State competition crowns 2024 winner

On April 9, McCain Auditorium brimmed with excitement, campus pride and Greek letters as the 11th annual Miss K-State competition began.

The annual charity pageant, hosted by the Delta Upsilon fraternity, is designed to support women

on campus. While this was a competition with contestants from 17 organizations, the audience celebrated whoever was crowned.

“I think this event is a really good way for women to connect with each other on campus,”  Kayla Albold, freshman in civil engineering representing Delta Delta Delta, said. “I met so many girls I wouldn’t have met otherwise; the bond we have established between this group of girls is something I will never forget.” 

According to Miss K-State website, the pageant celebrates women in the Wildcat community and showcases their ambitions, talents, intelligence and K-State pride while raising money to benefit communities worldwide.

“The hope for the event is to not only allow organizations to feature an exceptional woman in their membership but to also raise money for the betterment of underdeveloped communities abroad, through the Delta Upsilon Global Service Initiative,” the website states.

According to the GSI Fundraising video on its website, the money raised from fundraisers like Miss K-State goes to tools and supplies to rebuild schools, neighborhoods and communities abroad.

The pageant raises money for the initiative through ticket sales, contestant registration fees and voting donations on the Miss Fan Favorite award.
