Addison Price, 20, who just completed her sophomore year at OSU, competed as Miss Tulsa and beat out 43 other contestants from across the state to win the title of Miss Oklahoma in her first time competing in the statewide competition.
Because she has dyslexia and her brother has Asperger’s syndrome, Price chose empowering individuals with disabilities through self advocacy as her platform. “No matter what challenges you face in your life, you can overcome them, and you can make something of yourself. You can find your voice.”
The Miss Oklahoma Pageant is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tulsa, which took over full sponsorship of the event in 1972. Since then, more than 10,000 women have competed in the pageant at the state and local levels, according to the Miss Oklahoma Pageant’s website. The Miss Oklahoma Organization offers $2 million in scholarships to candidates.
