Miss New York won the crown of Miss American this year. I know it may not seems like a big deal, but I think it’s important that girls of all ages see this change. To know that they can be beautiful without showing the entire world their body. I am glad they eliminated the swimsuit competition. I can’t imagine the courage it must have took to wear a swimsuit in front of the whole world.
Many local and state contests had long ago eliminated this part of a pageant and many never had it. It’s a shame it took so long to reach the national level.
I think the challenged will be to eliminated this segment of the competition from the Miss Universe Pageant.
