Katelyn Bowers, a North Platte High School sophomore, has won the title of Miss Alliance’s Outstanding Teen 2020 in the Best of the West competition in Alliance.

Bowers was crowned on Nov. 16.

She finished in a first-place tie in two categories — best overall interview as well as best overall talent. She’ll be competing at state in April.

Katelyn is the daughter of Darreld and Melissa Bowers. Her grandparents are Henry and Deb Bowers, and Darrell and Lori Anderson, a family member said.
