STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State University is hosting its Miss OSU pageant next month with scholarships for the winner and four runner-ups to range from $150 to $1,200.
Sixteen contestants are to compete in the event on Oct. 3 on the Stillwater campus - twice as many contestants as the pageant had last year.
Categories for the competition include a parade of contestants, onstage questionnaire, swimsuit competition, talent competition and evening wear competition.
Miss OSU is part of the Miss America pageant system. The woman selected as the winner automatically qualifies to compete in the Miss Oklahoma pageant.
