Miller, 15, competed in her first regional scholarship pageant in 2015. The following year, she competed again, winning the title of Miss Columbia Pacific Outstanding Teen.

Last Saturday, Feb. 3, the Scappoose High School student took home a $700 scholarship prize and the title of Miss North Coast Outstanding Teen during the 2018 Miss Clatsop County Scholarship Program. The program is open to Columbia County residents.

Miller competed in Seaside, alongside seven other contestants, including Lilly Boothe of Clatskanie.

During the pageant, Miller performed a contemporary jazz routine to "Fight Song" by Rachel Platten.

Pageant contestants are each asked to choose a platform to help promote and raise awareness. Miller chose Lupus awareness. In addition to the Outstanding Teen title, Miller was also voted teen congeniality, a contest judged by fellow contestants, and shared the Teen award for the Miss Oregon 2016

Alexis Mather Service Above Self Award.

Miller is now eligible to compete in the Miss Oregon Scholarship Pageant later this year, as well as the Oregon Outstanding Teen contest.
