ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The final round of preliminary competition in the 2014 Miss America pageant will be held Thursday night in Atlantic City.
Contestants from Mississippi, New Hampshire, Minnesota and Oklahoma have won preliminary contests over the first two nights of competition.
Miss Oklahoma Kelsey Griswold won the swimsuit competition and Miss Minnesota Rebecca Yeh won the talent preliminary with a classical violin performance on Wednesday.
The new Miss America will be crowned Sunday night in the nationally televised finale from Boardwalk Hall.
The pageant began in Atlantic City in 1921, and is back after a six-year run in Las Vegas.
