ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – The third and final night of preliminary competition in the Miss America pageant takes place Thursday night in Atlantic City.
The competition includes contestants from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
Last night, Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields, won the talent competition with a jazz dance to a song from the T.V. show "Smash," and Miss Maryland, Hannah Brewer, won the lifestyle and fitness competition.
Though Thursday evening is the end of the preliminaries, there are still plenty of chances to see the contestants before the final show.
On Friday night the ladies will be walking the boardwalk in the Miracle Mile Walk, honoring the Children's Miracle Network, before celebrating at the Steel Pier. Then on Saturday the contestants will be back to take part in the historic Show Us Your Shoes Parade on the boardwalk in Atlantic City.
And finally, Sunday is the big night as the new Miss America will be crowned at Boardwalk Hall.
