On October 7, 2018, the annual Miss Auburn University pageant was held. The Beta Xi chapter of Delta Zeta had two participants, Taylor Hoff and Anne Landau. Anne was given the Miss Congeniality award and received $100 in scholarship money. Taylor received 3rd runner up and $2000 in scholarships.
When asked about her experience, Taylor shared:
“I had such an amazing experience competing for the chance to represent my university as Miss Auburn University and go on to compete for Miss Alabama through the Miss America Organization. After competing at Miss Georgia last year, I knew I wanted to continue to compete in pageants as they have grown me into a strong and confident individual while developing my passion for making a difference in other’s lives.
While competing for Miss Auburn University, I competed in Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit, Onstage Question, Private Interview, Evening Gown, and Talent. I walked away with 3rd runner up and over $2,000 in scholarships that I can use to further my education!
I have developed my own personal platform, Dare to CARE, where I am constantly working with my campus to improve the safety of students on my college campus as well as campuses across the county. I have also volunteered for the national platform of Miss America, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, where I have now raised over $2,000 for CMNH.
While competing in these pageants, I have felt an overwhelming amount of support from my friends and most importantly, my Delta Zeta sisters. From sending me supportive messages and love to helping me raise over $300 in one night for the national platform of Miss America, they never leave me to tackle a challenge alone! I wouldn’t be where I am today without my Beta Xi sisters and I am so thankful for the constant support while I pursue my dream of one-day competing at Miss America!!”
We are so proud of these members!
