This was Danika's first year in the top five after being a semi-finalist in the 2016 & 2017 pageants. She was Miss Wisconsin United States 2017. Sydney placed 2nd runner-up in last year's Teen contest and is the fourth returning runner-up to win the last six years. Both won the Miss Photogenic award this year (Sydney also won it in the 2018 pageant). Danika is from Richfield and Sydney from Mosinee, from what I can see they are the first titleholders from their respective towns!
The semi-finalists included former Georgia Teen USA runner-up Jamie Walloch, Robyn Oguinye who has competed in Iowa and Louisiana and made the first cut for the first time this year, and Theréza Marie Schwarten and Kaitlyn Schmidt, both non-finalists last year. Former Miss Wisconsin first runner-up Chelsey Wasielewski also made the semi-finals and won the Miss Congeniality award. The others in the top 12 were first timer contestants Kate Hopfensperger and Talia Obst.
The top 12 were last year's fourth runner-up Brooke Zengle, 2018 semi-finalist Erin Carey, 2018 non-finalist Madyson Friend and newcomers Ella Adams, Keeley Collins, Tiana Meyers, Sarah Niehueser, Annastasia Valeri, Jada Williams and Beatrice Windorski.
