Cali Crissup of Helena, a sophomore at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, has been awarded the $1,000 Scholastic Achievement Award from the Miss America Organization in conjunction with the Miss Oklahoma Pageant, currently underway in Tulsa.
The scholarship was established in 1998 as part of the Miss America Organization’s initiative to increase scholarship giving at the state and local levels. Candidates are evaluated strictly on academics based on the last two years of their transcripts. Scholarship America has the ability to weight the grades in terms of course content, academic standing of the institution and other factors.
Miss Oklahoma will be crowned Saturday night during the pageant finals beginning at 7:30 p.m. in the Mabee Center.
