State Rep. Melanie Miller (R-City of Ashland) invited and presented a proclamation from the Ohio House Representatives to Miss Ohio 2022, Elizabetta Nies, during a recognition ceremony on the House floor. Miller also acknowledged Nies and other young women vying for this year’s Miss Ohio during the legislative session.

“We would like to present a very special proclamation to honor Betta's year of service and the great work she's doing across the state in her honors and accomplishments, even being in our top 10 at Miss America, representing Ohio very well,” Miller said. “So we're so happy to honor you. Congratulations on your tenure as Miss Ohio 2022. An intelligent, motivated and personable woman, you have worked diligently to develop your knowledge and skills.”

Including Nies as Miss Ohio 2022, Miller invited a delegation of young women that will be in the running for Miss Ohio 2023 to the Statehouse to tour the grounds and be recognized during House session for all their achievements and contributions to the state.

“This is really such an honor. And really, I mean, representing Ohio this entire year and being able to travel the state and meet so many people and impact them on so many different levels has really just been a pleasure and truly a gift,” said Nies. “And I want to give a little bit of a message of motivation to all of the young women here that you are absolutely capable of so much more and your potential can lead you on a path that you might find yourself one day here receiving a proclamation.”
