Madilyn Olsen of Franklin was chosen as the 2014 Miss Idaho Days during the annual scholarship pageant last Friday night.
Her court consists of Jacee Hammons, first runner-up, daughter of Farahlyn and Jon-David Hammons; Katelynn Palmer, daughter of Spencer and Brooke Palmer, second runner-up and Adeline Pugmire, who received the Spirit of Idaho Days award. She is the daughter of Boyd and Julie Pugmire.
Madilyn, 18-year-old daughter of Tracy and Cherise Olsen, graduated last month from Preston High School and plans to attend BYU-Idaho then serve an LDS mission. Her talent for the event was a vocal solo. Singing is just one of her musical interests, which include dancing, playing the violin and piano and reading. She has two older sisters and three younger brothers.
“I am excited,” she said. “I am so grateful to be able to serve Franklin. I love the people here, they are so friendly and hardworking.” She said as she represents the city of Franklin, she would like to bring awareness of the need for donations of organs and tissue.
Masters of Ceremony were co-hosts 2013 Miss Idaho Days Brianna Crosgrove and Bryce Wood. During the evening, there were special dance numbers by the June Bugs and music by Bryce Wood.
