Georgia Tech student crowned Miss Georgia

Georgia Tech senior Maggie Bridges was crowned Miss Georgia 2014 this weekend at a pageant in Columbus.

Bridges, a 21-year-old from Brinson who is majoring in business administration, will go on to compete in the Miss America pageant.

Bridges qualified for the pageant as Miss Capital City. She sang for the talent portion of the competition and her platform was “Impacting others through volunteerism,” according to the pageant’s website.

“Giving my time and energy to serving others has brought more joy into my life, and into the lives of others, than any other activity in which I have participated,” Bridges said in a bio provided by pageant organizers.

The first runner-up in the Miss Georgia competition was Taylor Voyles, who is Miss Cobb County.

The Miss Georgia Pageant was held at RiverCenter in Columbus.
