14,000 women competed.

By my extreme involvement in my platform, most of you who read this blog realize that a "platform" is the community service organization or social movement or issue that each contestant promotes during her year as a local or state titleholder. I have some numbers to share with you.

1 Miss America
53 State Titleholders (50 states, US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia)
1,200 Local Titleholders across the United States
14,000 Women competed in Miss America Local Competitions last year alone

So 14,000 contestants = 14,000 platforms! and 14,000 community activists.

New York has 20 local titleholder holders and many of them are busy promoting their work in their communities through active blogs. Check out some of my daily reads:
