Road to Miss Arkansas: Miss Ozark Highlands Kristen Sharp
Kristen Sharp will likely be one of the youngest contestants to be on the Miss Arkansas stage at 18 years old.
Sharp is from Van Buren, where she is a senior at Van Buren High School.
She performs a Jazz dance as her talent.
Her platform is 'The Compassion Campaign (Comforting Children in Foster Care)' where she works to end the negative stigma around kids who are in foster care. Sharp says she was inspired by a friend who was in foster care.
Sharp plans to attend UCA where she will major in nursing.
