2015 Miss University of Georgia
Madison Giddens is a third-year student in digital and broadcast journalism at the University of Georgia. She is the daughter of Allen and Tabitha Giddens of Sylvester.
A high school honor graduate, Madison is on the Dean’s List at UGA and receives the HOPE Scholarship and several other scholarships. She is a member of Kappa Delta Sorority where she has held or currently holds several leadership positions. As a vocalist she has performed the National Anthem for the governor of Georgia and also performed at Lincoln Center in New York City as an honor choir recipient. Madison is also a worship leader at the Classic City Church.
Madison is a CMT (Charcot-Marie-Tooth, a hereditary neurological disorder) fighter. She has auditioned for the TV show X-Factor, has appeared as an extra in a country music video and has performed before 30,000 people and on national television.
During her year of service, she will focus her platform on Body Image Issues-Loving What You’ve Got. As a spokesperson for the National Confidence Coalition, a national movement which conveys a message to women of all ages that they are good enough as they are and can make their dreams become a reality, she says “I will be an ambassador who expresses beauty, not defined by society’s standards, but by individual standards of love for oneself.”
Madison Giddens will compete in the 2015 Miss Georgia Scholarship Pageant June 17-20 in Columbus; the winner of that pageant will represent Georgia in the Miss America Pageant.
The Miss University of Georgia Pageant is an official preliminary for the Miss America Organization. The MAO represents the largest private scholarship foundation for women in the U.S. This year, scholarship assistance totaling more than $45 million was available to contestants at all three levels. The Miss America Organization, established in 1921, is a nonprofit civic corporation.
The Miss UGA Scholarship Pageant is a program within UGA's Division of Student Affairs. Contact Jerry Anthony at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
