On September 21, 2019, six contestants participated in the Miss Africa Idaho program. Among them were ISU students, Anna Mugongo and Ifunanyachukwu “Thelma” Anih, who took first and second runner up respectively. Miss Africa Idaho is a cultural education scholarship program aimed at promoting the diverse African culture, providing education scholarship opportunities for young African women studying in the United States, and educating the general public of Africa's rich cultural heritage.

Anna participated in the program to encourage and motivate young African students to keep going in school and life no matter how hard it gets. She came to America in 2010 and didn’t know how to read or write, but because of her support system, she is now a political science major planning to go to law school. Her passion is helping young people reach their full potential.

Ifunanyachukwu was born and raised in Nigeria, West Africa and spent most of her early education in Nigeria as well. She moved to Idaho from Nigeria in 2016 to further her education and is currently a Junior studying Business Management. Her first name Ifunanyachukwu means Love of God. She values her name and does her best to incorporate the meaning in her daily life. Thelma believes people should treat one another with love. Her goal in life is to own an academy that would teach performing arts in Nigeria.
