Miss Kansas USA 2021 is Gracie Hunt

Gracie Hunt, representing Kansas City, was crowned Miss Kansas USA 2021 in a glittering competition held on Sunday, April 11 at the B&B Live Performing Arts Theatre in Shawnee.

The 21-year-old works in marketing and development for the Kansas City Chiefs and currently pursuing her master’s in sport management from the University of Kansas. She is a global ambassador for Special Olympics, a certified health and fitness coach with Celiac disease, and founded the nonprofit Breaking Barriers Through Sports in 2016 to aid the disadvantaged and promote respect and inclusion worldwide.

Gracie succeeds Hayden Brax and will now prepare to represent her state at the Miss USA 2021 pageant.

The new Miss Kansas USA is the daughter of Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt and former titleholder Tavia Shackles, who finished as a runner-up in Miss USA 1993.

"I cannot put into words how honored I am to join the VANBROS family and Miss Kansas USA legacy & represent the amazing state of Kansas," she posted on social media.

"Thank you to everyone who believed in me and to God for making my prayers a reality. I hope to make everyone proud through the next part of my journey. And so the adventure begins."
