UHRICHSVILLE (WJER) (Oct. 2, 2023) – The new Miss Clayland is already getting more involved with the area.
21-year-old Brittney Putman of Grove City was crowned the 67th Miss Clayland out of 10 contestants at the scholarship pageant Saturday night at Claymont High School. She’s a student at Ohio State and says she’s thrilled to win.
“To be Miss Clayland 2024 is an incredible opportunity to serve my community,” said Putman.
Her community service initiative is “You’re Important Too: Advocacy for Children of Substance Abuse.” She wants to show that pageant contestants can be relatable and inspirational.
“Being a child of a substance abuse home myself, it’s something very important to the heart,” she said.
Putman says she enjoys the aspect of service.
“I really want to work with Noah’s Hope, a child advocacy center here in Tuscarawas County. I really want to be an active member in the role.”
For winning the Miss Clayland Pageant, Putman was awarded a $2,100 cash scholarship and a $500 scholarship to Kent State Tuscarawas.
