was awarded the title of Ms Galaxy U.S 2014 after she placed first runner-up in the 2014 Miss Galaxy International finals in Orlando.
This title was awarded as she was the highest scoring contestant from the United States. Sydney competed under this title when she competed in the Ms Galaxy International finals in 2015 as part of her prize for placing first runner-up.
The title is not awarded by way of a live event. It is a progression title that is awarded to the area's highest scorer (if not the overall winner), much like the continent titles of Miss World. 1st runners up in the Galaxy system are given the opportunity to return the following year and re-compete, area titles are only awarded in the delegate chooses to accept this offer.
