Katie Himes won the Miss America Community Service Award in the Miss Kentucky pageant Saturday, July 14.
Though she was not selected as a Miss Kentucky finalist this year, she received $1,000 for her award.
Himes said the community service award along with the academic award are two of the highest non-finalist awards.
Himes was one of 31 contestants in the Miss Kentucky pageant, which is a preliminary for the Miss America pageant.
