There she is: Miss America 2011 — and she’s barely old enough to drive!
Miss Nebraska Teresa Scanlan waved to the crowd after beating out a bevy of 52 other beauties to be crowned Miss America 2011 during the annual Miss America Pageant at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
At 17, Scanlan is the youngest winner ever in the pageant’s history. Teresa, who completed high school at just 16, begins her reign with a $50,000 college scholarship and opportunity to advance her pageant platform of battling eating disorders.
