Savanah Overturf is crowned Miss Amazing 2021 at the July pageant in Nashville.

The national Miss Amazing pageant celebrates women and girls with disabilities of all kinds. This year’s Miss Amazing 2021, Savanah Overturf, is from Fort Collins. She was crowned at the national competition in Nashville in July.

Overturf is a communications student at Colorado State University, a slam poet, and a fierce advocate for people with disabilities. She joined Colorado Edition to talk about her plans for her year-long reign as Miss Amazing.

As a producer for Colorado Edition, I pitch segment ideas, pre-interview guests, craft scripts and cut audio. I also write tweets, build web posts and occasionally host.
As host of KUNC's Colorado Edition, I work closely with our producers and reporters to bring context and diverse perspectives to the important issues of the day. And because life is best when it's a balance of work and play, I love finding stories that highlight culture, music, the outdoors, and anything that makes Colorado such a great place to live.
