She competed and was sweetly surprised to learn by phone call the following day she was one of 10 finalist slected in her age group to attend National American Miss University. Following the university pageant Hannah was invted to compete in the NAM Minnesota State Pageant in August. After three days of modeling, personal introduction, runway and interviews, Hannah received a trophy for 4th runner up in runway modeling, the Spirit of America award and became a state finalist.
