Teen Trivia: Oregon may not have much success in the Miss system, but has had trememdous success in the Teen USA system. That's right! Oregon is home to two former Miss Teen USAs!

Oregon has placed 4 out of the 19 years of the Miss Teen USA pageant, two of which were victories. The first time happened in 1984 when Dina Woodard finished as 4th runner-up. In 1988, Mindy Duncan captured the first Miss Teen USA title for Oregon during the 5th anniversary of the pageant. Two years later, Bridgette Wilson won the second title for Oregon in 1990. The last time Oregon was in the semifinals was when Jill Chartier placed in 1993.

Sarah Warner didn't make the 2001 semifinalists list, but was named Miss Congeniality by her fellow delegates, which was their first special award won.
