The new Miss Colorado 2003 is Katee Doland, 22. She is a grqduate of Regis University. Katee performed a lyrical dance for her talent presentation. Her platform is Literacy-The Million Word Challange. This was Katee's third attempt to win the Miss Colorado title. She was the second runner up in last year's pageant and was a top seven finalist in 2000.

No stranger to the pageant stage, Katee is a rare commodity. Shs is a triple crown winner in Colorado. She was the Colorado Teen USA in 1998 and was Miss Colorado USA in 2001.

Katee has also been a cheerleader for the Denver Broncos. She was the youngest ever selected the first time she made the squad.

The first runner up and Miss Congeniality was Melanie Murrow; second runner up and Community Service winner was Amy Beth Wiley; third runner up and winner of both the evening wear and talent awards was Larissa Fucillo (Larissa had previously been a dance finalist on StarSearch); and fourth runner up was Laura Tobey.

The winner of the swimsuit award was Ashley Alexander and the Academic Award was Emili Talmich.

The 2003 Miss Colorado Pageant was held in July 7, 2003 in Broomfield, CO.

Pageant Trivia: Colorado has three Miss Americas. The first two were only two years apart! Then it was 16 year's until the third Miss Colorado was crowned Miss America.

Colorado first made the semifinals when Delores Conrad of Denver, CO reached that plateau in 1926. Since then Colorado has had the 3rd ru in 1949, 3rd ru in 1988, 1st ru in 1989, and 2nd ru in 1990

They also placed as a semifinalist in 1964, 1970, and 1991.

Will the new millennium be a new beginning for the state and bring another Miss America to Colorado, or at least another semi-finalist?
