Miss Minnesota USA 2023 is Sarah Anderson of Maple Grove

Sarah Anderson was crowned Miss Minnesota USA 2023 in a glittering state competition held on Sunday, July 30 at the Ames Center in Burnsville.

The 20-year-old model representing Maple Grove bested more than 30 other competitors to win the state title. She succeeds last year's winner Madeline Helget (Miss USA 2022 Top 12) and will now prepare to represent her home state at Miss USA 2023.

"Wow, the last 24 hours have been a whirlwind. Last night was so incredible and one I will never forget. I am so thrilled to be representing our amazing state at Miss USA as your new Miss Minnesota USA 2023," Sarah shared online after the pageant.

Samantha Mangseth Akins of Grand Rapids was named first runner-up while Cara Rgnonti of Mendota Heights, Elle Gilbert of Apple Valley, and Kala Schmidt of Eden Prairie finished as the second, third, and fourth runners-up, respectively.

For Miss Minnesota Teen USA 2023, 18 contestants competed for the title that eventually went to Saint Paul's Mikhala Rivers who will now proceed to Miss Teen USA 2023. She was crowned by outgoing titleholder Ava Ernst.

The teen's runners-up were Lillie Imm, of Stillwater, Estella Howard of Chisago City, Grace Stahl of Minnetonka, and Lily Jacques of Winona.
