Addison Price, Miss Oklahoma 2019, is a junior at Oklahoma State University majoring in Marketing with a minor in Nonprofit Management.
At Oklahoma State she is active in the Presidents Leadership Council, National Society of Leadership and Success, Cowboython, Freshman Follies, and Pi Beta Phi sorority. She also volunteers at WONDERtorium in Stillwater, the Tim Tebow Foundation, and the Little Lighthouse in Tulsa. Upon graduating from Edmond North High School, she was the recipient of the Kohl’s Kids Who Care Scholarship, Kiwanis Community Service Award, YMCA’s “My Fresh Page” National Award, and Presidential Leadership Scholarships. Addi is a dancer, speaker and advocate, encouraging students to be their best self through volunteerism, kindness, and self-acceptance.
Miss Tulsa was the first and only local title Addi held while competing for Miss Oklahoma. In addition to winning the title of Miss Oklahoma 2019, Addi was awarded the Preliminary Night Newcomer Talent Award, On-Stage Interview Award, Outstanding “Rookie” Interview Award, Private Interview Award, and Outstanding “Rookie” of the Year Award.
Addi is proud to represent her state and promote her social impact at Miss America 2020. Her social impact initiative, “Empowering Individuals with Learning Difference through Self-Advocacy”, is near and dear to her heart. In elementary school she was diagnosed with Dyslexia and understands the struggles many differently-abled students face. Addison looks forward to using this year to raise awareness of the broad spectrum the word disability covers, empowering students to use their voice, communicate their needs, and not allowing a “label” to define their success. Addison is also excited to be partnering with the Lt. Governor’s office using her marketing skills to help rebrand the great state of Oklahoma!
Addison has been dancing and performing since the age of three. Her passion for performance and self-improvement inspired her to compete as a teen in the Miss Oklahoma Organization.
In 2016 she was honored to be given the title of Miss Oklahoma’s Outstanding Teen. During her year as Miss Oklahoma’s Outstanding Teen she spent her time developing service-learning opportunities for teens and partnering with a variety of organizations including: Hope for Soap, YMCA, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Red Cross, Fine Arts Institute, Mobile Meals, and many more.
“As a Teen and Miss competitor in the Miss Oklahoma Organization, I have been pushed, questioned and challenged. My preparation process required self-discovery and building self confidence to be the best me possible. Involvement in campus activities, sports, and higher education classes developed specific areas of my life, however, none of these developed the whole person in all areas simultaneously like the Miss America Program. I am honored to be the face and voice of an organization that empowers young women and will do my best to make Oklahoma proud this year.”
Addison is the daughter of Cris and Shannon Price of Edmond, OK, the younger sister of Andrew Price, and the proud dog mom to her eighty-pound goldendoodle, Finlee.
