KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Allison Cook, a sophomore middle blocker for the Oregon Tech volleyball team, represented Klamath Falls this past week as Miss City of Sunshine in the 67th annual Miss Oregon Pageant in Seaside. Twenty-two additional young women joined her from across the state to vie for over $450,000.00 in cash and tuition scholarships, as well as the right to represent our state in the national Miss America Pageant in January.
A new comer to the pageant world, Allison made an impressive showing. During the preliminary rounds of competition she was awarded the top swimsuit score from her group and received a $200 scholarship. This was the first time this was awarded after a twenty year absence. During the final night of competition her name was called multiple times for scholarships by the emcees. She won the overall lifestyle and fitness award (swimsuit) which came with a $500 scholarship, the Tiffany Phillips Memorial Scholar-Athlete Award in the amount of $1,000 and she placed as the 4th runner up to Miss Oregon winning an additional $1,500 scholarship.
Allison entered the state competition having won the most scholarship money at the local level in Oregon receiving $6,525 for her efforts on April 28, 2012 at the Miss Klamath County-Miss City of Sunshine Scholarship Pageant. These grants in addition to what she secured at the state level bring her cash and tuition scholarship awards for the year to $9,725.
