Auburn grad competing for Miss America wants your vote

Names dropped in Courtney Porter’s Miss America promo “Vote For Me” video: Reuben Studdard, Taylor Hicks, the University of Alabama, Auburn University, Muhammad Ali.

She had us at Reuben.

Porter, a 2009 Auburn graduate and 4-year member of the Tiger Paws dance team, was named Miss Alabama in June and will have a shot at the big crown in January. And you can help her win it. Or at least you can let the webmaster for MissAmerica.org know that you really want her to win it—we’re not sure whether voting our real life Melanie Smooter as your favorite contestant has any bearing on the actual contest, but hey, it can’t hurt.

Close your eyes just for a sec at :34 and click away!
