Miss Florida visits Martin County, makes Everglades restoration her platform

The Miss America Organization founded the platform concept, which requires each contestant to choose an issue about which she cares deeply and that is of relevance to our country. Once chosen, Miss America and the state titleholders use their stature to address community service organizations, business and civic leaders, the media and others about their platform issues.

Miss Florida’s visit included a visit to the Martin County Board of Commissioners meeting, a tour of the Florida Oceanographic Coastal Center on Hutchinson Island in Stuart, and the Environmental Studies Center in Jensen Beach. She is a senior at the University of Central Florida, where she is a marketing major. She will compete in the Miss America pageant, January 2012.
