    Miss South Dakota’s Outstanding Teen 2022 will be crowned tonight and Miss South Dakota tomorrow night, both at South Dakota State University in Brookings.  

     This is the 75th Anniversary Miss South Dakota Pageant and the third in Brookings after the first 72 were all in Hot Springs. There are 20 contestants for the Miss title, one of the largest fields in years, and 12 for the Outstanding Teen crown.

      The Miss Pageant held the first of 2 preliminary rounds last night with Miss Sioux Falls Margaret Samp the preliminary talent competition winner while the Social Impact Pitch winner was Miss Rapid City Carly Goodhart.

     Samp, studying government and music at Augustana University, received a $1,000 scholarship for singing the contemporary opera selection “Time To Say Goodbye.” 

       Goodhart’s Social Impact Pitch titled “Woman Up: Upping the Education and Access to Women’s Health” brought her a $500 scholarship. A neonatal intensive care nurse in Sioux Falls, Goodhart is pursuing her Master’s in Nursing. 

      The second preliminary round is this afternoon, giving way this evening to the Outstanding Teen Pageant. The Teen winner advances to the national pageant August 10-12 in Dallas with the next Miss America to be crowned in December. 

     Representing Miss pageants from southwest South Dakota are Miss Hot Springs Kendall Cummings, Miss Fall River Balloon Festival Lysa Thompason, Miss Rapid City Carly Goodhart, and Miss Central States Fair Megan Clark.

     On the Outstanding Teen side are Miss Hot Springs OT Riley Lockhart, Miss Fall River Balloon Festival OT Amara Bertelson, and Miss Rapid City OT Sydney Lockhart.

    There is a livestream for tomorrow night’s Miss South Dakota Pageant finals. Cost is $20 with more information at www.misssd.org/miss-south-dakota-competition
