Madden ready to compete in Miss America pageant

Miss Wyoming, Lexie Madden of Torrington, has done all the preparation and is now ready to travel to Las Vegas for the Miss America pageant January 12th, which can be seen on ABC at 7 p.m. mountain time.

Madden, the guest on Friday's News Extra program, says the thing she has been working on the most is the interview portion of the contest. Madden says it's difficult to know what the judges will be asking, but she has been studying and forming an opinion on things from politics to social issues to pop culture.

Madden, who will play the piano for her talent, said other Miss Wyomings have told her she will be nervous. But she said she is also going to take their advice to simply enjoy the experience, do the best she can and everything else will simply work itself out.

Madden, a student at the University of Wyoming, was Wyoming's Junior Miss in 2009.
