Scholarship money was on the line Sunday as the Miss Montana USA 2019 and Miss Teen Montana USA competitions where held at Missoula's community theater.

Miss Missoula Anita Green was attempting to become the first transgender woman named miss Montana.

The three categories the women were judged on were the interview, as well as an evening gown and swimsuit competition.  Instead of swimsuits, Miss Teen Montana USA does a fitness portion.

More than $170,000 in scholarship money was given out during the competitions that featured almost 40 women.

The title of Miss Montana USA went to Miss Zootown Grace Zitzer and Miss Montana Teen USA was awarded to Miss Musselshell County
