Madison was also a semi-finalist in 2013, while Vicki was competing for the seventh time. She started competing in Teen in Oklahoma in 2007, was fourth runner-up in 2008 then moved to Missouri to attend college using her Lindenwood scholarship, making the semi-finals there in 2012 and 2013. 2014 was the first year she competed in Kansas.
In the Teen division, Madison's little sister Malerie placed fourth runner-up. One of my favourite moments of any state pageant this year was during Madison's question and answer where she was asked to name her "most prized possession". Madison named her sister, saying she "knew it was cheesy" but that she was so proud of her for making the top five in her first pageant and then adorably thanking the judges for putting her sister in the top five - I loved it!
First runner-up was Gracen Gueldner, who was also a semi-finalist in the 2013 pageant but had not competed since. Second runner-up went to last year's third runner-up Lily Austin. Third runner-up was Riley Alton, who placed first runner-up in 2014 but did not compete last year.
