Miss Washington 2010 Is…NOT Burien’s Hayley McJunkin (Boo!)
The new “Miss Washington” was crowned at Burien’s Highline Performing Arts Center last weekend, and while we initially cheered on local gal Hayley McJunkin (competing as “Miss Auburn,” well, because other than an old hydroplane, there no longer is a “Miss Burien”) had a “home field advantage”; but sadly, she did not win, place or even show.
The good news is that she gave a “good performance,” according to Miss Washington Executive Field Director Michael R. “Mike” Miller, and she received a $750 scholarship as a non-finalist.
Here are the final results:
- Miss Washington 2010 – Miss Greater Vancouver, Jacquie Brown ($10,000 scholarship)
- First Runner-up – Miss Seattle, McKinley Smith ($3,500 scholarship)
- Second Runner-up – Miss Columbia Basin, Brittney Henry ($3,000 scholarship)
- Third Runner-up – Miss Liberty, Jacklyn Kellogg ($2,500 scholarship)
- Fourth Runner-up – Miss Tahoma, Lauren Kuhn ($2,250 scholarship)
- Miss Congeniality – Miss Whatcom County, Vonda DiLorenzo
Miss Washington 2009, Devanni Partridge, was on hand to crown the new Miss Washington.
Haley McJunkin gave a good performance in all phases of competition, but she did not win any awards. She represented Auburn very well and received a $750 scholarship as a non-finalist.
Jacquie Brown’s platform issue is Encouraging Youth Mentoring. She feels that mentors helped her through tough times in her teen years and her passion is strong for mentoring.
