Posted By on Fri, Jun 22, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Miss Memphis, Nicole Jordan, 18, began competing against a field of 36 contestants from across the state for the title of Miss Tennessee 2007 this week.

Wednesday was the first of three nights of preliminary competition leading to the crowning of the new Miss Tennessee on Saturday. The pageant is held annually at the Carl Perkins Civic Center in Jackson.

Miss Tennessee contestants compete in swimsuit, talent, evening-wear, interview, and on-stage questions. During the competition, the contestants will win more than $73,000 in scholarship funds. The winner of Miss Tennessee 2007 becomes the Governor’s Official Spokesperson for a Safe and Drug Free Tennessee. Miss Tennessee will compete for the title of Miss America 2008 in January 2008.

Jordan was crowned Miss Memphis 2007 in December 2006. Currently, she serves as the city’s official ambassador making numerous appearances promoting her platform SAFER: Sexual Abstinence for Endless Reasons.

(And no, we did not make up that last part.)
