Each year, a contestant is crowned as Miss America in a national competition. This year, a 23-year-old woman just earned the title!
Cara Mind beat 51 other competitions from across America, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. Mund is from North Dakota and was the current title holder of Miss North Dakota.
The third place winner was Miss New Jersey. The second place winner was Miss Missouri. The women from those states earned scholarships for their participation.
Cara Mind, the winner, is a graduate of Brown University where she studied law. She now earns a six-figure salary and all of her expenses will be paid during 2018.
Mund also wins a $50,000 scholarship and an appearance with Dick Clark Productions. She will now serve as an ambassador for the title.
