Becky Bridger was crowned Miss Wyoming 2018 on Saturday night earning a spot at this year’s Miss America competition in Atlantic City, scheduled for September 9.
Bridger attended Sheridan high school and received an associate degree in finance from Sheridan College, but she also studied performing arts for two years at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles.
Bridger is adopted and chose to center her platform, which is titled “Thriving in between: breaking boundaries to discover an authentic you,” on issues of identity that she said are common, but by no means limited to, adopted children and adoptive families.
While building her platform, Bridger connected with people and organizations throughout the community to create service opportunities. She is currently working with the Summer of Hope program to bring eight Filipino children to Sheridan for four weeks in the hopes of finding them adoptive families.
