Forever Miss Oklahomas



In saluting our former Miss Oklahomas, records show that Nellie Grant from Ada, Oklahoma, represented our state in the 1922 Miss America Pageant. In 1926 there was no state pageant, but Norma Smallwood, Miss Tulsa, competed and became the first Oklahoman to win the Miss America Pageant.  Oklahoma has had a total of six women to become Miss America. We hope you’ll enjoy reminiscing with us as we look back at our former Miss Oklahomas.
