Voting for Miss Homecoming begins Friday, Sept. 30 at 7 a.m. on AU Access. Students can vote until 7 p.m. This year’s top five Miss Homecoming candidates are Leah Bostany, Kelsey Guyan, Kate Hardman, Maggie Smith and Victoria Starks. The winner will be announced at halftime during the Homecoming game on Saturday, Oct. 1.

Bostany, a biomedical sciences major, is bringing attention to risk factors that influence youth to withdraw from school and factors that prevent students from pursuing higher education while raising funds and partnering with the Lee County Youth Development Center.

Guyan, a psychology major, is promoting the importance of having a healthy, positive body image and bringing awareness to the severity of eating disorders.

Hardman, a nursing major, is promoting the Make-A-Wish foundation, raising money to grant children wishes and bringing awareness to childhood terminal illnesses.

Smith, a human development and family studies major, is promoting Baby Steps, an organization that empowers pregnant college women by allowing them to choose both their baby and their education by providing support throughout pregnancy and after childbirth.

Starks, a nutrition major, is raising awareness of ways that students can proactively combat heart disease and cancer, the two leading causes of death in the United States and raising money for the Magic Moments Organization.

Since 1937, Auburn students have elected Miss Homecoming. Originally elected to be “the official sponsor of all events of the weekend,” Miss Homecoming candidates now promote a platform and share their passion with Auburn students throughout the week.
