Kylee Solberg, Miss Tri Counties, was crowned Miss Idaho 2016 on Saturday, June 18th at the Nampa Civic Center. Kylee competed with 21 other young woman from around the state and will compete at Miss America on September 11th, 2016 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. 

Kylee stopped by Good Morning Idaho Monday morning to chat with Rachel Garceau about her whirlwind weekend, how she's already prepping for the Miss America competition, and about her platform as Miss Idaho. Kylee hopes to bring awareness to online bullying with her platform, "Our Words have Power." Kylee was inspired by a story of a young girl from her home town that was being bullied. 

Kylee is currently attending Boise State University to pursue a Communications Degree. She was 1st runner up in the Miss Idaho Pageant in 2015 and was crowned Miss National Sweetheart 2015.
