This week on Meet the People, Kells Hetherington visits with Beth Helgeson, Miss Alaska 1991. They discuss what the Miss Alaska and Miss America pageants are all about. Beth reflects on her own experience competing for the title, and talks about some of the ways in which the programs have evolved. Beth describes changes that led to the inclusion of Native American women in the competition and how the event has morphed into something that remains viable in today’s supercharged media world.
