Clarkston Woman Myranda Townsend Looking to be the Next Ms. Stars and Stripes

CLARKSTON – Myranda Townsend from Clarkston, Washington is currently in first place in her group for the national Ms. Stars & Stripes online competition and needs your vote to make her dreams come true.

STAR Magazine is putting on Ms. Stars & Stripes to find one woman who represents the most “country” way of life. The winning woman will receive a two-page spread in STAR Magazine and a whopping $25,000 grand prize, as well as, access to some of the most desired country events of the year.

Townsend, who just turned 29 on Wednesday, is a stay-at-home mom and horse lover. She decided to enter the competition after she lost her beloved barn, where she was well known for giving lessons.

“I loved giving lessons,” Townsend said. “I am well known as the horse person and I have been training for about 10 years now. I would love to get it back up and going.”

The first round of the competition finished last week and Townsend explained she was elated, however, she stated the race is far from over.

The Ms. Stars & Stripes competition is an eight-week process and community members are able to vote once a day for free. Individuals are also able to purchase extra votes and the money will go to the American Royalty Charity out of Kansas City which gives opportunities to youth and adults to play in their rodeo and livestock shows.

“I appreciate everyone’s votes this far,” Townsend said. “It doesn’t take long, if you have a couple of minutes, I would love for you to vote.”

The next cut is this Thursday, August 18 when the top 15 will be selected to move forward. STAR Magazine will continue to cut individuals until they reach the top four, then the final round will begin.
