Outstanding Teen 2017 – Grace Stanke

One girl’s life changed back in June when she was crowned Miss Wisconsin’s Outstanding Teen 2017. Grace Stanke wowed the judges with her interview, fitness, violin performance, and evening gown. She went on to compete in Orlando at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen, where she earned thousands of dollars in scholarships. She plans on supporting cancer patient’s families through her platform, Circles of Support during her year of service.

Grace has been playing the violin for 8 years, and plans to continue all throughout life. Aspiring to double major in Applied Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering, she wants to become a literal rocket scientist. That’s possible for her, because at age 15, she is already a full time college student and is set to have an Associate’s degree by the time she graduates high school. Outside of school, Grace loves to volunteer, hike, lift weights, and practice her violin.
