Miss Ohio USA

Stacy Offenberger, Miss Ohio USA 2006

The Miss Ohio USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Ohio in the Miss USA pageant.

Ohio achieved success in the first decades of the Miss USA competition but has not done as well in recent years. Ohio is one of only twelve states to win the Miss USA crown twice (Sue Downey in 1965 and Kim Seelbrede in 1981).

There are many notable Miss Ohio USA's, most famously actress and Oscar winner Halle Berry who was 1st runner up to Miss USA in 1986. Others include Kim Mullen (2002) of Survivor: Palau, Melissa Proctor (1990), current director of the Miss Ohio USA and Miss Michigan USA pageants and Lesa Rummell (1977), mother of Miss Teen USA 2005, Allie LaForce.

Two Miss Ohio USAs are former Miss Ohio Teen USAs who competed at Miss Teen USA.
