Inscription.  
"At twenty-one years old I've been able to lobby on capitol Hill, address members of Congress, speak at assemblies and talk to ordinary people all over the country about the vital issue of AIDS awareness and prevention. I've gone places other activists and previous Miss Americas might not have dreamed of going. But that's what being a woman in this era means: going where we want to go and saying what needs to be said, and that is also the role of Miss America."
