Emily Olthouse, Miss Snoqualmie Valley, recently competed for the Miss Teen Washington crown and won the Miss Spirit Award.
Olthouse, a senior at Mount Si High School and an ASB officer, took second runner-up in the state competition. She received several prizes but the most valuable is a $40,000 college scholarship.
Oldhouse did very well, as she was the only one in the top five that had never competed before.
She is the daughter of Steve and Amy Olthouse of Ames Lake. Her family includes siblings Brock and Rachel, who attend Chief Kanim Middle School, and Luke, who attends Fall City Elementary School.
Emily's ambition is to become a pediatric surgeon and help children in less fortunate parts of the world.
