Miss Green - Anna Knapp
Hello! My name is Anna Knapp and I’m so honored to be your Miss Green 2022! I am the daughter of Melissa and David Knapp of Franklin Furnace and the sister of Abbie and Jonathan Knapp. I attend Green High School and Shawnee State University in Portsmouth. I’m a current junior at Shawnee State University studying Mathematical Science through the Ohio College Credit Plus program. I’m also a junior at Green where I’ve played varsity basketball and ran varsity cross country for three years. I’m also a three year member of the Green High School Science Bowl team. I’m the current Green-SCCTC FFA chapter president where I enjoy competing in career development events and teaching our youth about agriculture. I’m an eleven year member of Scioto County 4-H. I’m currently enrolled in Lyra Livestockers where I show market and breeding cattle and other livestock related projects. Not to forget my Girl Scout troop 336!
My platform is called “Shop Your (Local) Heart Out!” and it focuses on supporting locally owned businesses in our communities. By shopping at smaller, local stores, we’re giving back to them. Local business owners are the ones who always support our activities and fundraisers. If we would all start thinking about our purchases before we make them, we could make smarter decisions as consumers. The next time you go to make a purchase, consider shopping locally before buying at a national chain store. By putting more money and more jobs back into our local economy, we can continue making Scioto county a place that everyone is proud of.
I’d like to thank Missy Smith, my pageant mom, for agreeing to put in so much time and effort to help me on my River Days journey this year. I’d also like to thank my mom and my dad for putting in so much! I’m so proud to be a bobcat and I’m very thankful that I have the opportunity to represent our school! Thank you so much Bobcat Nation! All of the support that I’ve already received is so overwhelming!
The People's Choice Award will be awarded to the contestant who raises the most money for the River Days Festival and will be guaranteed in the Top 5 or 6.
The People's Choice Award will be announced during crowning.
Portsmouth River Days is operated by Friends of Portsmouth, a registered 501c3.
