Miss Oklahoma Report From Corbi Wells Goddard (6/11/2012):

Tawnie Goodwin competed in 4 areas of competition this past week. First was the private interview, which is 10 minutes and there are 5 judges who ask questions that range from their personal platform, political and social issues, and questions from their resume. (Tawnie's was Child Nutrition). The judges all had Oklahoma ties.There were 2 former Miss Oklahoma's on the judges panel, one being former Miss Oklahoma 1980/Miss America 1981, Susan Powell and Miss Oklahoma 1991 Gina-Lynne Smith. Former OSU basketball star, Desmond Mason was also a judge, along with Tony Award winner Stephen Dalhem, Miss Mississippi Pageant Executive Director, Professional Dancer Don Odom, and Top 30 under 30/Top 40 under 40, Jay Doyle.
There were 45 contestants in the Miss Oklahoma Pageant this year and over 4 Million dollars awarded in Scholarship money to this years contestants to colleges all across Oklahoma! Very impressive!! The amount of Cash scholarship money reached $99,000. Incredible!!!! There are also many, many prizes given to the winner. For example, Henry Primeaux Kia awards the new Miss Oklahoma with a new car. This allows her to travel all across the state of Oklahoma and speak to schools each and every day. This was also the 40th Anniversary for Miss Oklahoma and Kiwanis Club of Tulsa partnership. The Miss Oklahoma Pageant has been established since 1922. Oklahoma is tied with California for the most Miss America's at 6 each. Betty Thompson, Miss Oklahoma 2011, was 1st Runner Up at Miss America that was held this past January.

Second competition for Tawnie was the Talent Competition, where she played the piano to the Classical "Pour Le Piano Prelude"

Third competition for Tawnie was the Evening Gown Competition, where my daughter, Chelsea Goddard and another young lady, Sydneigh Fourkiller, escorted her on the Miss Oklahoma Stage as Tawnie's Miss Oklahoma Stars. (This competition also requires answering an Onstage question regarding your personal platform.) Nine years ago the Miss Oklahoma Organization announced the creation of a new kind of Mentoring Program designed to expose girls ages 5-10 to outstanding young women as role models. Each Miss Oklahoma Contestant is committed to mentoring the young girl she has selected to be her "Star." The mentoring program is entitled "Oklahoma Stars" because it brings together the pride in our state as well as promoting our states "Stars of tomorrow" Through the Oklahoma Stars Program and its link with Miss Oklahoma's Outstanding Teen, the Miss Oklahoma Organization is excited to announce that our impact on young women now ranges from ages 5-25. The Miss Oklahoma Organization is committed to its development of Oklahoma's young women and its future leaders.

Fourth area of Competition was the swimsuit competition. All contestants are judges based on lifestyle and fitness. They want a young lady to exemplify a health body image.

The Final night of Miss Oklahoma, held on Saturday June 9th, they announce the top 10 contestants out of the 45, and those 10 girls compete onstage again in talent, evening gown, swimsuit, and on stage question. This years winner is Alicia Clifton, who is a phenomenal and accomplished Tap Dancer. She also holds the Guinness Book of World Records for over 30 pirouettes (spins/turns) on one leg. She even beat her own record. She can be seen on You Tube and was also on the Ellen Degeneres Show. I have a feeling she could be the next Miss America. Alicia is also a 20 year old student at the University of Oklahoma and is also a member of the OU Pom Squad. Her platform is "TAP" into Lifelong Volunteerism, encouraging people of all age groups to get involved!! Alicia began in the Teen Program for several years and was crowned Miss Oklahoma Outstanding Teen 2008. In 2009. Alicia began the Miss Program. She competed in the Miss Oklahoma Pageant for 3 years before winning this 4th year! It takes a few years sometimes to grow and develop your platform and interview skills, but along the way you receive scholarships and tuition waivers just for competing, and also develop lifelong friendships.

Tawnie didn't make the Top Ten this year, but her progress this year was leaps and bounds from last year, which was her 1st year competing, and she was Miss NSU at the time. I have attached pictures of Tawnie (with her Oklahoma Star, Chelsea Goddard-my daughter) and Summer, our Teen.
