The Smithsonian's National Museum of American History will receive the wedding gown worn by actress Melody Thomas Scott as “Nikki Reed” during one of her 12 weddings on the daytime drama, “The Young and the Restless”.

Ms. Thomas Scott has been a major player in “The Young and the Restless” daytime drama, acting on the show for more than 34 years. The dress was pledged to the museum during the Sunday June 16 broadcast of the 40th annual daytime EMMY awards.
The museum has partnered with the National Academy of Arts and Sciences to collect objects reflecting the contributions of daytime television. A May 9 donation ceremony marked the partnership's beginning with donations from All My Children actress Susan Lucci, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek and Barney co-creator Kathy and composer, Phil Parker. The donations represent three of the Daytime Entertainment Emmy categories-daytime dramas, game shows and children's programming.
