Hannah Robison was Miss Tennessee 2015 and placed in the top 7 at Miss America. She also received the America's Choice Award, a STEM Scholarship, and 1st runner-up to the Quality of Life Award. For the final question she was asked, "Some legislators are threatening to shut down the government over federal contributions to Planned Parenthood, even though no federal funds can be used for abortions. Should Planned Parenthood funding be cut off?" She said, "I don't think Planned Parenthood funding should be cut off. The $500 million that gets given to Planned Parenthood every single year goes to female ... care. It goes to screening for cancer. It goes for mammograms. And if we don't give that funding to Planned Parenthood, those women will be out of health care for reproductive causes."
She studied chemistry and psychology in college.
Hannah's first pageant was "The World's Largest Fish Fry Festival" at the age of 12. When she was 16, she was named "Hostess Princess" at the same festival. Her mother, Pam, won the Hostess Princess title in 1979. In 2010, she won the title "Tennessee's Miss Teen All American" and was named "Fairest of the Fair" at the Henry County Fair and won the statewide Tennessee's Fairest of the Fair title in 2011. She was 2nd runner-up to Miss Tennessee Teen USA 2012.
