Which States Have Not Won Miss USA

In 1952, Jackie Loughery made history as the first-ever Miss USA. In 1954, Miriam Stevenson became the first Miss USA to win Miss Universe. Years later Carole Gist made history as the first African-American woman to be crowned Miss USA. Brandi Sherwood became the first, and only, woman to hold both the Miss Teen USA and Miss USA titles. 

The "Law of Firsts" states that by being the first person to do something, you make history. So if your state is on the "Never Won Miss America List," be the first and secure your name in the history books.

Which States Have Not Won Miss America

In 1921, Margaret Gorman was the first Miss America ever crowned. Years later Heather Whitestone became the first deaf Miss America. Nina Davuluri was crowned the first Miss America of Indian decent, Miss Kansas who was the first girl to compete with tattoos and Miss Iowa Nicole Kelly, who was the first amputee to compete for the Miss America crown.

So if your state is on the "Never Won Miss America List," be the first and secure your name in the history books.
