Kelly Koch was crowned Miss Iowa at the Adler Theatre in Davenport Iowa in
June 2016. Kelly won the crowd and judges over with her dynamic personality,
engaging stage presence and her highly technical and gorgeous ballet en
point performance, which also secured her a preliminary talent win. She
looks forward to competing for Miss America in September.
Kelly is thrilled to have the opportunity to travel throughout the state
of Iowa and beyond, performing for crowds, visiting schools and speaking to
businesses and non-profit organizations. Kelly's school visits focus on
helping young people discover their passion and find ways to give back to
others. Whether it's speaking or performing for an entire school at an
assembly or working on a project with a small group in a classroom, Kelly
thrives on sharing her message with young children and teens.
As Miss Iowa, Kelly is able to embrace her passion for the Pinky Swear
Foundation, whose mission is to aid in the emotional and financial support
of families and their children who are going through the burdens of
pediatric cancer. As a National Ambassador for Pinky Swear, Kelly is
dedicated to fundraising , tending to the care and comfort of the children
and families of Iowa, and raising awareness for the foundation.
