A Spokane woman is now Miss Washington and will compete in Miss America in September.

Kailee Dunn is an Eastern Washington University Graduate and she is putting her $14,000 scholarship prize toward her student loans.

“You know you hope for the best. I was really calm and at peace and whatever the results were I was going to walk away happy with that,” said Dunn.

Dunn said if Miss America does not work out, she has an opportunity to travel to Shanghai, China with Lieutenant Governor, Brad Owen in October.
