All 57 contestants in Miss Texas take home some form of college scholarships.
The winner receives $20,000.
Another Aggie participating Saturday night was Miss Central Texas, Cassidy Scott. She spoke prior to the finals.
“I’ve learned it’s okay to not be perfect. I’ve had to learn how to accept my faults, my strengths and really see myself for who I am. And now I’m a lot more confident because of the Miss Texas Organization,” said Scott.
She says she wants to go into music education and be an opera singer.
