The 2017 Miss Kansas Pageant will offer the public an opportunity to determine which contestant automatically advances to the Miss Kansas 2017 finals on June 10, 2017, through an online voting method.

All contestant photos, names, platform issues, talent and titles will be posted on the Miss Kansas Organization website on a Kansas’ Choice Awards page. Each vote is $1 and submitted electronically by clicking on the vote button, with all proceeds benefitting the Miss Kansas Scholarship Organization.

Online voting will be open May 2, 2017 at 12:01 a.m. CST until 11:59 p.m. CST on June 6, 2017.

Results of voting shall be provided to the Miss Kansas Organization Auditing Team of Swindoll, Janzen, Hawk & Loyd, LLC immediately thereafter.

As always, no reference to numeric placement will be announced, with competition order determined by the production staff. The Kansas’ Choice Award will be announced prior to the remaining Top Ten at the beginning of the final competition on Saturday, June 10, 2017.
