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?
