Chelsey Martinez Crowned Miss NDA at Academy Awards


Adviser, Online Tritonian

In a night touted as historic, Notre Dame’s most popular event returned live before a nearly capacity crowd. Ten guys and three senior girls astounded  the audience, many of whom had never seen a live show of the ever-popular event.

Senior Chelsey Martinez took the title with a dance routine featuring family and friends and a Q & A response that probably secured the crown over Jack FitzGerald, first runner-up, and Jason Vandenhouten, second runner-up.

Senior Sophia Richards earned the title of Miss Congeniality.

In the words of one participant, “I want to thank everyone who helped put this event together.  This night was the best night of my life, and I couldn’t have wished for a greater memory.  Thank you to the contestants for making Academy Awards such an amazing experience for me.”
