Entering the contest and holding the Miss Oklahoma title itself both involve a lot more than members of the public know, Price said. Many of the most important aspects of the competition take place behind the scenes and rely heavily on candidates with a defined vision for the job.
“What a lot of people don’t realize is that we don’t just do what most of you see on stage; we actually have a private interview with the judges. Meanwhile, this is really when you talk about your goals as Miss Oklahoma. What are you working towards. What do you hope to do with this title, ”said Price.
“It’s really the same way you would present yourself to a job interview in a company office. You are going for a job interview for this position in this organization. “
The week of competition will be particularly rigorous this year. Miss Oklahoma President Jack Cooper said contestants are kept in a “bubble” environment at the resort to ensure their health remains good throughout the competition.
Masks will not be required for fully vaccinated members of the public, but will be encouraged for unvaccinated participants.
The Miss Oklahoma organization provides more than $ 2 million in scholarships per year, according to the press release. Despite the lack of a competition in 2020, those who won titles in 2019 were still eligible for a scholarship, Price said.
