Denali Whiting was Miss Alaska Teen USA 2011



A native of Kotzebue, Denali Whiting was crowned Miss Alaska Teen USA on 6 November 2010 and represented Alaska at the Miss Teen USA 2011 pageant in the Bahamas. She was the first and is so far the only Teen titleholder from the Artic Circle. She graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2014 with a degree in Alaska Native Studies.
