2016 Miss North Dakota year of service to come to an end

On Saturday, the 2017 Miss North Dakota will be crowned here in Williston. That means after a whirlwind year, it's almost time for 2016 Miss North Dakota Macy Christianson's year of service to come to an end. From the Miss America Pageant in September, to speaking to countless students across the state about not drinking and driving. It's been a busy year.

Miss America was definitely one of the highlights of my year. Just because it was so much fun and I got to do some of the things I never thought I'd get to do. Like dance on the Miss America stage and stand amongst some of the most amazing women that I've ever met. so it was incredible and it was definitely a highlight.

For the summer, I'm just kind of relaxing. I'll be working and doing some traveling. But I'll start up school again in the fall, at the University of North Dakota where I'm studying psychology. So that's an exciting thing I get to go back to.

Preliminary competition for this year's Miss North Dakota Pageant are tonight and tomorrow with the crowning coming at Saturday Night's finale. The competition is at the Bakken Elementary auditorium.
