Morgan Baird, Miss Nebraska, says, “There are several aspects of the competition that I need to be prepared for like talent, fitness, interview portion so I’m taking each of these separately and trying to make sure my mind and body are at their peak, so I am ready to compete for Miss America. After I was crowned everyone was loud and busy and I heard someone say, from the crowd “You’re going to Miss America” and I’m like I was going to black out! It’s been 10-years since some from this side of the state has been crowned Miss Nebraska so it’s truly an honor to represent not only Nebraska but my small town of Gering on the Miss America stage.”
