Wearing a white bathing suit by Catalina swimwear, Miss Georgia Carly Mathis won a $1,000 for her commitment to lifestyle and fitness.
And performing with an injury, Miss Florida Myrrhanda Jones was awarded a $2,000 scholarship for talent. Myrrhanda tore her ACL during competition rehearsal Thursday afternoon and was admitted to the local hospital. Even so, she asked doctors what she needed to do to perform her baton twirling talent on the Miss America stage. Judges watched as she performed every twist and toss with precision, poise, and perfection.
Miss America contestants across the country who compete in local, state, and national competitions continually prove their commitment to success, even through life's unexpected obstacles.
