Miss Vermont 2018 is Julia Crane of Colchester. Julia is a graduate of the University of Vermont with a Bachelor’s degree in Nutrition & Health Sciences, a degree she graduated with cum laude. She recently received her Master’s in Public Health from the University of Vermont. She’s a talented tap dancer and danced to Hey Momma/Hit the Road Jack by Pentatonix in the talent portion of the Miss Vermont competition. Julia’s platform is “Be a Hero: Be an Organ Donor.”
“I’m so excited to be the new Miss Vermont. I’ve spent the last several years promoting Be a Hero: Be an Organ Donor, and look forward to the opportunity to share my message with a broader audience, especially nationally at the Miss America Competition. The opportunity to bring the significance of organ donation into the public eye cannot be overstated. Increased public awareness will help us create more heroes right here in Vermont. Together, we can save up to eight lives through one, selfless donation. With organ donation, from death can come life, and everyone has the ability to be a real life superhero.”
Julia competed for the title of Miss America 2019 in Atlantic City LIVE on ABC on September 9th. She was named Miss Congeniality by her fellow candidates and a STEM Scholarship finalist.
