Miss Minnesota is Nitaya Panemalaythong – a Laotian American

Miss Minnesota is Nitaya Panemalaythong. She is Laotian American and will be battling for Miss USA. At 26, she’s the oldest contestant and entered because she was going back to school and yes, being a Miss Minnesota has to help with scholarships. Congrats. (Savage Pacer – Nitaya Panemalaythong)
