SEASIDE, Ore. — Harley Emery of Lane County has won the 70th annual Miss Oregon Scholarship Pageant.

Emery and 19 other contestants competed in swimwear, talent, and other categories during Saturday’s scholarship pageant in Seaside, Oregon.

After waiting in suspense next to the other Top 5 contestants, Emery says she was “in shock” to hear her name called as Miss Oregon.

The Daily Astorian says Emery has competed in the Miss America organization for five years. She will represent Oregon at the Miss America pageant in Atlantic City, New Jersey, in September.
