Two young ladies will represent Wyoming in the 2012 MISS WYOMING USA® and MISS WYOMING TEEN USA® after taking home the crown this past weekend in Casper. Holly Allen of Lander was crowned Miss Wyoming USA® and Sydney Graus of Jackson took home the title of Miss Wyoming Teen USA®. Both titleholders will advance and compete next year at the Miss USA® and Miss Teen USA® national pageants.

The competition, which is held annually in Casper, consists of three proportional segments: evening gown, swimwear and interview. Eligible young women must be between the ages of 14 and 26 and be unmarried residents of Wyoming in order to compete in the pageant.

Holly and Sydney will each receive thousands of dollars in prizes and awards.
