ONALASKA, Wis. -

Miss Onalaska Madeline Joy Anderson won the Lifestyle and Fitness in Swimsuit preliminary competition at the 2013 Miss Wisconsin Pageant in Oshkosh Wednesday night.

Anderson says her success in the competition Wednesday night is due in part to her dedication to her platform, East Smart Eat Whole, which focuses on eating foods in their most natural form.

On Thursday night, Anderson will compete in talent and evening gown. She will be performing a contemporary dance to the Sara Bareilles song, "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay."

"We are so proud of Madeline and all she has done and continues to do to represent the community of Onalaska with poise, style, elegance and grace," said Miranda Schmidt, co-director of the Miss Onalaska Organization.

Preliminary competition for the 2013 Miss Wisconsin Pageant continues Thursday night. The final night of competition will be held on Saturday, June 22 at the Alberta Kimball Auditorium.
