CEDAR RAPIDS — A Des Moines native and current University of Iowa student is competing in Miss America.
Aly Olson was crowned Miss Iowa this summer. The 21 year old is taking a break this year from her vocal music studies to compete.
Olson says it's an honor to have been crowned. “I have had the opportunity to travel whether cross country or to other countries, I love to tell people I am from the middle of the country, we have farms, we have cities, I am a student at the UI. I love this state and can't wait to represent it at Miss America.”
