Miss Virginia won the Miss America pageant tonight by answering a question about childhood obesity (children should turn off the tv, put down the video games, and go outside), wearing a “bold” yellow dress in the evening wear competition, and singing some Beyonce.
Miss Virginia is Caressa Cameron, a 22 year old broadcast communications student at VCU. Originally from Fredericksburg, she’s been named to the dean’s list and earned over $35,000 in scholarships from the Miss America organization. Caressa wants to come back to VCU after her year of serving as Miss America, finish up her degree and pursue a masters. She hopes to be a television news anchor someday.
