Miss Alaska USA

Miss Alaska USA

The Miss Alaska USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state Alaska in the Miss USA pageant.

Alaska's highest placement was in 1964, with Patricia Marlin as the second runner up. Alaska's most recent placement was in 1990 when Karin Meyer placed in the top 6. Alaska held the most wins in the pageant's history for "Best State Costume," until the category was discontinued in 1994. Two Miss Alaska USAs were former Miss Alaska Teen USA titleholders and two were former Miss Alaska titleholders who competed at Miss America.
