Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell was crowned Miss America 2016 at the birthplace of the legendary competition in Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. The 95th Miss America Finals were broadcast live on ABC.
Betty's acceptance of the highly-prized crown is just the beginning of a journey that will take her to every corner of the nation during her year of service as Miss America 2016. She will embark on her national speaking tour about her platform, Healthy Children, Strong America, and act as the official National Goodwill Ambassador for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals, is the national platform partner of the Miss America Organization.
Betty is a student of Mercer University. During her year as Miss America, she will serve as spokesperson for Healthy Children, Strong America. Along with the coveted title of Miss America 2016, Cantrell won a $50,000 scholarship provided in part by Joseph Ribkoff Inc. and the Miss America Organization to continue her education. For the talent portion of the competition, Cantrell performed the operatic vocal performance of "Tu Tu Piccolo Iddio."
First runner-up in the competition was Miss Mississippi, Hannah Roberts, who earned a $25,000 scholarship. Her talent was classical violin, and her personal platform is Pages of Love.
Second runner-up honors and a $20,000 scholarship was awarded to Miss Colorado, Kelley Johnson. Her talent was original monologue, and her personal platform is The Health Initiative PLUS.

Miss Tennessee, Hannah Robison, was the winner of "America's Choice," an online competition where viewers were given the first time opportunity to vote for their favorite Miss America contestant entirely on social media.

Lee Graham, crowned her successor Miss Louisiana Teen Katherine Haik after the 51 state delegates [including the District of Columbia] competed for the prestigious title
The 15-year old is an avid sports and music lover — playing softball, basketball and piano in her downtime. She wowed judges in the evening gown and swimwear competitions, but really stole the show with her interview answer. When asked which historic woman she’d like to see on the new $10 bill, Haik answered that she’d like to see Rosa Parks because she was a woman whose bravery Haik admires and she wishes her generation could stand up for things that are right the way Parks did during the Civil Rights Movement.
Katherine also impressed judges and the audience when she was able to name every U.S. president in order with a cute little song.

Let Your Soul Glow: Creating a sun-kissed, glowing look is the perfect way to give the illusion of tanned and
dewy skin for the summer.
There is no debating that your skin looks its best in the summer. Why not make it look even better by adding a bit of glow? Your summer makeup style should be all about looking naturally radiant, but unfortunately most of us don’t wake up with perfectly dewy skin. Luckily, mastering that look is just a few brush strokes away if you are equipped with the
right products. The key to achieving this effect is to keep your skin looking glowing, but not greasy.
The secret to becoming a movie star is never being afraid to leave Hollywood for the spotlight of the theatre.
Years ago, a young actor in training told me she only wanted to be a soap opera actor. With a straight face I said I understood that if she were offered a starring role in a feature film, she should state emphatically, “I’m sorry, I only do soap operas.” Of course, she should also reply in a similar fashion if offered a role in a Broadway Show or a TV situation comedy. I respond with little difference when young actors tell me they only want to do movies.
No one should need a reminder that IMTA remains the place to be seen and heard for every aspiring model and entertainer looking for a big break.
If it’s January in Los Angeles, home and playground of the world’s biggest stars, it must be time for the 2015 IMTA L.A. modeling and talent convention. IMTA—the International Modeling and Talent Association— is the most recognized and respected modeling and talent showcase of its kind, providing a first-class opportunity for fashion and talent agents, personal managers, scouts, casting directors, network representatives and music producers to find the next supermodel or rising star. The IMTA L.A. convention perennially kicks off the new year of success stories and the realization of starry-eyed dreams for many.
