New Miss Texas crowned Saturday night.

RICHARDSON, Texas (KBTX) – 50 young women from all over the state have been competing in Richardson this week for college scholarships and the crown of Miss Texas.

Miss Southlake, Annette Addo-Yobo is the new Miss Texas. She receives twenty-thousand dollars in scholarship money and will represent Texas in Miss America.

“I want to bring Autism safety, awareness and education to the frontlines of our programming and our legislation. My younger brother Andrew was diagnosed on the spectrum when he was age four. And as an immigrant to this country, he had a large learning curve to overcome,” said Addo-Yobo.

The former Miss Texas Ellie Breaux was 1st Runner up at Miss America in January.

Some of the other 50 contestants spoke prior to Saturday night.

Miss Madison County Lindsey Walston is from Katy, Texas and goes to Sam Houston State University.

“I care about connecting with people and changing lives through confidence building and empowering women,” said Walston.

She says she plans to work in the public health sector so she can help local communities be healthier.

Two other contestants are Aggies.

Miss Arlington Grace Shoop is getting her Masters at A&M in Public Policy.

“I want to be Miss Texas to share that women are powerful. Each of us has a unique story and an individual voice and I look forward to empowering young women to share that,” said Shoop.

When asked what she learned going through the Miss Texas system Shoop said, “I have learned the value of having your own voice and owning it. Each of us goes through different trials, different tribulations, and has different experiences. Miss Texas teaches us how to leverage that and how to inspire other women with it.”

Miss Texarkana Madison Matlock went to A&M and is getting a Masters at SMU, her platform is drunk driving.

“Drunk driving affects two out of three Americans, in their lifetime, and it’s something that truly devastates our communities and I’m ready to bring that to the state of Texas,” said Matlock.

She says she would love to work in luxury ranch and home realty and own her own realty group.

“I have an Agriculture Degree from Texas A&M University and I would love to take that experience I had in that wonderful program, and the experience I’ve had at SMU as a member of the Real Estate Club, bring those together,” said Matlock.
