Send Amanda to Miss America
On June 14, the Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization, a pre-cursor to the Miss America pageant, crowned its 2014 winner: Miss Pike Creek Amanda Longacre.
Less than two weeks later, because of her age (24) it was determined that Amanda was not eligible to compete.According to a press release sent out by MDSO, “following the Miss Delaware Pageant, it was determined that Amanda Longacre exceeded the age requirement in order to be eligible to compete."
Amanda, an MSW candidate at the University of Pennsylvania was so honored and excited to represent the state of Delaware in the national Miss America pageant only to have the opportunity taken away from her.
The purpose of this petition is to show the Miss Delaware and Miss America organizations the support Amanda has and that we believe she should be the one to represent Delaware in Atlantic City on September 15.
