Miss Minnesota--Angie McDermott

University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) graduate Angie McDermott was crowned "Miss Minnesota" on June 14, 2008 in Eden Prairie.

An Austin, Minnesota native, Ms. McDermott has a communications degree from UMD and hopes to work in public relations and event planning. Her winnings include a $6,000 scholarship and $750 for her first-place scores. McDermott's platform is "Higher Education: Journey to Your Dream," which features a curriculum-based program for fourth- and fifth-graders.

The platform is an issue that contestants will work toward improving in the state. McDermott will compete in the Miss America pageant in January.
