Miss Vicksburg Anne Elizabeth Buys has won the crown for Miss Mississippi 2017. This was the 85th year of the competition, and the 60th year of the pageant being hosted in Vicksburg.

Buys received a $10,000 scholarship and will represent Mississippi in the Miss America Pageant.

Last year’s first runner up, Anne Elizabeth Buys is a Communications-Public Relations and Broadcasting major at Mississippi State University.

“My family and I sponsored a clean water well in a remote village in India when I was thirteen years old,” said Buys. “I was impacted greatly after I saw pictures of the people who were overwhelmed to see clean water for the first time and knew that I wanted to continue my involvement.”

The runners-up were:

4th –Asya Branch, Miss All American City

3rd– Brooke Bullock, Miss Jones County

2nd– Tanner Fant, Miss Meridian
