Miss Idaho Is a Top 10 Finalist in Miss America Pageant

Atlantic City, NJ – (670 KBOI News) – For the first time in nearly 50 years, Miss Idaho is a Top 10 finalist in the Miss America pageant.

Nina Forest, a college student from Pocatello, says she’s honored to have represented her home state, but she’s still a little numb about the whole thing.

“I can’t comprehend that it actually happened,” said Nina.  “I haven’t watched the live broadcast yet, so I think when I watch that, it’ll finally sink in.  But really, I felt so overjoyed knowing I was able to do that for Idaho.”

The last Miss Idaho to make the Top 10 finalist was Karen Herd, who was 1st Runner-Up in 1972.

Nina’s social platform is fighting childhood hunger…she says she has come to respect and admire the folks at the Idaho Foodbank in her work to end food insecurity.

When I was in elementary school, probably first through fourth grade, I used to listen to the radio every morning while eating breakfast.  My mother would turn on the radio and tune it to 1310 AM, which was KLIX in Twin Falls.  KLIX, just like KBOI in Boise at the time, was a full-service radio…
