Sylvania native wins Miss OhioWritten by Associated Press | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The new Miss Ohio says she’s excited to represent the state after years of near-misses.
Becky Minger was crowned June 19 in Mansfield. The 22-year-old graduate of Bowling Green State University competed in the state pageant five times and was last year’s first runner-up.
The Sylvania native captured the title this year from a field of 25 other contestants, winning a $10,000 scholarship and other prizes.
Minger will compete for the Miss America title Jan. 15 in Las Vegas.
