Miss Wyoming 2012: Lexie Madden
The Miss Wyoming Board of Directors congratulates Lexie Madden who was crowned Miss Wyoming 2012 on Saturday June 23 at the WYO Theater in Sheridan.
Lexie’s platform is “Raising Awareness of the Importance of Physical Activity in Youth.”
Why the importance on physical activity in youth?
Lexie explains: “Obesity rates have tripled in the last three decades, so it’s definitely something our society has to change. I just want to promote it to kids and show them physical activity doesn’t have to have a negative connotation, it can definitely be something fun for them.” During her year of service as Miss Wyoming, Lexie will travel throughout the state to promote awareness on her platform. She will also serve as an ambassador for the Children’s Miracle Network.
Lexie personally is an active young lady; she has long been involved in sports including basketball and volleyball.
Lexie entered the Miss Wyoming pageant as Miss Goshen County. A native of Torrington, Wyoming, she is the first Miss Goshen County to be named Miss Wyoming. In the history of the Miss Wyoming program, she is the third native of Torrington to win the state crown. A native of Torrington has not won the state title since 1967 when Patricia Martinez was crowned Miss Wyoming for that year. Patricia toured with the Miss America USO troupe. The first Torrington native to wear the state crown was Elaine Holkenbrink, Miss Wyoming 1953. Elaine was a semi-finalist and preliminary swimsuit competition winner at the Miss America pageant.
Lexie has the opportunity to be the first Miss Wyoming to win the Miss America crown.The week-long Miss America pageant is scheduled during January in Las Vegas. The final night of competition and crowning of Miss America 2013 was broadcasted live on the ABC network.
