Addison Price, Miss Oklahoma 2019, is a junior at Oklahoma State University. In June she competed against 44 other contestants from across the state to win the title of Miss Oklahoma as a first-year candidate. In addition, Addison also received the Preliminary Night Newcomer Talent Award, On-Stage Interview Award, Outstanding “Rookie” Interview Award, Private Interview Award, and Outstanding “Rookie” of the Year Award, earning over $30,000 in scholarships. She is currently on hiatus from OSU to meet the time demands serving as Miss Oklahoma. She is honored to be Oklahoma’s representative at Miss America.

Addison has been dancing and performing since the age of three. Her passion for performance and self-improvement inspired her to compete as a teen in the Miss Oklahoma Organization. In 2016 she was honored to be given the title of Miss Oklahoma’s Outstanding Teen. During her year as Miss Oklahoma’s Outstanding Teen she spent her time developing service-learning opportunities for teens and partnering with a variety of organizations including: Hope for Soap, YMCA, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Red Cross, Fine Arts Institute of Edmond and many more.

Her social impact initiative, “The Dyslexic Difference: Empowering Individuals with Learning Differences through Self-Advocacy”, is near and dear to her heart. In elementary school she was diagnosed with dyslexia and understands the struggles many students with differences face. Addison is using this year to raise awareness of the broad spectrum the word disability covers, empowering students to use their voice, communicate their needs, and not allowing a “label” to define their success. She has partnered with many state and national organizations including: Decoding Dyslexia, Note Ability, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Tim Tebow Foundation, YMCA, Little Lighthouse, Hope or Soap, Kiwanis Club, Rotary International, Edmond Public Schools Foundation, and many more nonprofit groups.

“As a Teen and Miss competitor in the Miss Oklahoma Organization, I have been pushed, questioned and challenged. Involvement in campus activities, sports, and higher education classes developed specific areas of my life, however, none of these developed the whole person in all areas simultaneously like the Miss America Program. I am honored to be the face and voice of an organization that empowers young women and will do my best to make Oklahoma proud this year”, Addison Price.

Addison resides in Edmond, OK, is the daughter of Cris and Shannon Price, the younger sister of Andrew Price, 23, and the proud dog mom to her eighty-pound goldendoodle, Finlee.
