Miss COED 2018 Results

#1. Jenna Palek
#2. Alexis O’Neal
#3. Tanja Jeramaz

Submissions are now open for Miss COED 2019.

Jenna proved to be a strong contender from the start of the Miss COED 2018 competition with her fashion sense, gorgeous looks and of course her fun personality. Second place winner Alexis O’Neal almost gave her a run for her money, but Jenna ultimately took the spot.

Yet, Jenna is more than just a pretty face. The Cleveland native is a sophomore at Kent State University and is majoring in Fashion Merchandising with a minor in business management. Jenna is involved in the sorority Alpha Phi and serves as the Assistant Director of Formal Recruitment and the University Tees Campus Director. She sells and helps design promo items for student organizations. She hopes to one day work for Sherri Hill, an Austin, Texas-based Fashion company.

Thanks to her fans and supporters, Jenna has won a free trip to Cancun for her and three of her friends. Courtesy of STSTravel, Jenna will receive:

  • Round trip airfare from closest major departure city to college campus to destination
  • 5-night all-inclusive resort accommodations at Oasis Cancun Lite or comparable hotel based on quad occupancy
  • Round trip transfers to and from resort
  • 5-night VIP Party Pass with VIP tables hosting VIP events

Oh, and did we mention the KILLER prize package she gets too?

  • One Spring/Summer box from FabFitFun
  • A bag of her choice from Solo
  • A pair of athletic eyewear from Adidas
  • A bathing suit of her choice from Kulani Kinis
  • Plenty of COED/Miss COED shirts and flags

Needless to say, we think Jenna’s sorority sisters will be fighting over the chance to join her on this awesome trip.

Jenna said that she wanted to be Miss COED 2018 because:

“I believe I express everything that my university stands for. I’m confident, I’m a leader in my community, I’m really well connected on campus, I’m lots of fun, and above all else, I believe that I’d be a great role model for younger girls.”


Jenna and her friends aren’t the only ones that will get to live it up in Cancun.

Second place finalist Alexis O’Neal and third place finalist Tanja Jeramaz, as well as one of each of their friends, get to enjoy their own trip to Cancun courtesy of STSTravel.

Their packages include:

  • Round trip airfare from closest major departure city to college campus to destination
  • 4-night all-inclusive resort accommodations at Oasis Cancun Lite or comparable hotel based on quad occupancy
  • Round trip transfers to and from resort
  • 4-night VIP Party Pass with VIP tables hosting VIP events

Miss COED has been passed from last year’s winner Maggie Arceneaux to Jenna and from Tulane to Kent State.
