Miss Alabama USA 2023 is Sophie Burzynski

Miss Auburn-Opelika Sophie Burzynski was crowned Miss Alabama USA 2023 in a state pageant held on Saturday, January 28 at Gogue Performing Arts Center in Auburn.

The 21-year-old wedding videographer and a senior student at Auburn University bested over 30 other competitors to win the state title.

Last year's winner, Katelyn Vinson, passed the crown to her successor who will now prepare to represent the state of Alabama at Miss USA 2023 in Reno, Nevada possibly this fall.

The runners-up were Miss Greystone Noelia Voigt, Miss Southern Plains Diane Westhoven, Miss Rover Region Margaret Anne McNeill, and Miss Huntsville Randee Hinson-McCrary.

Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, the new Miss Alabama USA aspires to become a dentist and is currently a double major in nutritional science and business management. 

Sophie has been eyeing to fulfill her pageant dream for six years and winning last night's competition was part of it. She wants to become an agent for transformative impact in empowering others.

Miss Teen Alabama USA 2023 Kensey Collins, a 15-year-old high school student from Spanish Fort, was also crowned at the same venue. She succeeded AnnaLee Story and will proceed to compete in the Miss Teen USA 2023 national final.

Ava LeBlanc of Shelby County, Jaycee Parker of Mobile, Georgia Busby of Queen City, and Halle Sullivan of Camellia State round out the Top 5 for the teenage division.
