On stage questions

Miss Ohio Finals

On Stage Questions

Kasey: Recently, the US provided aid to China and Myanmar following disasters. Should the US do this when there are so many needs in our borders?

Said that it’s the moral thing to do.

Jenna: Several high profile politicians, including Marc Dann, have been forced to resign their positions due to actions outside their official duties. Should we consider these qualities?

Yes, they should be held to a higher standard. Gave a very solid answer.

Karissa: Going green is the new catchphrase. Who should be responsible? Individuals, corporations, or government?

Good answer about starting with individuals and taking it up.

Erica: The rule of supply and demand is demonstrated by our dependence on foreign oil. We currently have rules protecting many of our wildlife areas. Is it time to lessen the restrictions so that we can be more self-sufficient?

Referenced two real places (Florida and Alaska) and said we should decide between the environment and fuel, that we should choose environment. Good answer.

Becky: During this years primaries, Obama was criticized for comments from his pastor. Is it fair to assume that Obama has the same qualities as his pastor?

This was a weird question to answer and Becky handled it well.

It looked like everyone was a little bit nervous, but who wouldn't be?
