OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Twenty-six women will compete in Oshkosh this week for the title of Miss Wisconsin.
They'll meet the judges Monday night at a merchants' dinner, where local residents can sponsor a contestant.
Preliminary competitions will take place Wednesday and Thursday nights. The finals will be held Saturday evening, with the winner to advance to the Miss America Pageant to be held in mid-September in Atlantic City.
The new Miss Wisconsin will replace Paula Mae Kuiper of Mount Pleasant, who made the Final 12 in last year's national pageant before being eliminated.
