Congrats to Teresa Scanlan for winning MISS AMERICA CROWN!!
Miss America 2011 started with a stage full of 53 contestants at Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. After the swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions, there was one woman left standing to inherit the crown from Miss America 2010 Caressa Cameron.
Teresa Scanlan, Miss Nebraska, was one of the youngest competitors on the show. After being crowned the winner of the 2011 Miss America Pageant, she burst into tears and raised her arms up as Cameron pinned the crown to her head.
