OSHKOSH, WIS., June 24, 2014 — On Saturday evening, June 21, 2014, Raeanna Johnson, a 24-year-old from Holmen, Wis., was chosen as the new Miss Wisconsin. Representing the Miss Madison-Capital City pageant, Johnson receives a $10,100 cash scholarship along with other in-kind scholarships, gifts and awards, and the opportunity to compete for the title of Miss America 2015 at the national pageant in Atlantic City on September 16, 2014. Johnson is a 2014 graduate of the University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse with degrees in Organizational & Professional Communication Studies and Women’s Studies. For the talent competition, Johnson performed a lyrical dance en pointe to “Hallelujah.”

Moments after being selected, Johnson shared her excitement about winning the Miss Wisconsin title. “As they announced the finalists, I was trying to keep my mind clear and just relish in the moment. I am excited to step into this role and be a part of the Miss America organization,” said Johnson.

During her year as Miss Wisconsin, Johnson will travel throughout the State advocating her platform issue “Tyler’s Legacy: The Impact of Substance Abuse on the Family.” Johnson’s platform is named for her brother who died from substance abuse in 2005. “I want to remove the stigma of talking about substance abuse and open up those conversations,” says Johnson. She will also talk to various government representatives, business leaders, community groups and citizens-at-large. She is available for appearances and can be booked through www.misswisconsin.com.
Johnson is the first Miss Wisconsin to hold the title twice. She ascended to the title when she was first runner-up in 2011 to Laura Kaeppeler, who became Miss America 2012. Jeanne Schmal, Executive Director of the Miss Wisconsin Organization, explains, “If a woman assumes the role of a state title but has not competed at Miss America, she must take a year off before she can compete again. This is not the first time it’s happened, but it is a first for Wisconsin.” Adds Schmal, “Raeanna is going to make a wonderful representative for Wisconsin. She’s talented, ambitious and accomplished. We’re excited to have her experience Miss America in Atlantic City this September.”

Johnson succeeds Paula Mae Kuiper Miss Wisconsin 2013 who was a Top 12 finalist at Miss America 2014. Since 1936, Wisconsin has two national titleholders – Miss America 1973 Terry Anne Meeuwsen and Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler.

There were 26 talented and intelligent contestants in this year’s program, who were awarded nearly $30,000 in cash scholarships and additional thousands in in-kind scholarships. A number of contestants received awards during the final and preliminary competitions, including:

  • 1st Runner up, Miss West Allis, Chelsey Wasielewski from Greendale, Wis.
