UNCASVILLE, Conn. — The competitor from Alaska was crowned Miss America at a planned social occasion on Thursday marking the competition’s 100th anniversary.

What started as a 1921 Atlantic City beauty pageant has developed gradually away from the emphasis on looks only — contestants are no longer judged on physical appearance — with a new focus on leadership, talent and communication skills.

Emma Broyles from Alaska won the centennial crown and a $100,000 college scholarship. She appeared as the winner out of 51 participants appearing for the 50 states and the District of Columbia at the competition at a Connecticut casino.

Broyles remain the first competitor from Alaska to be crowned Miss America in the competition’s history.

The climax that historically has been featured in a primetime television broadcast was obtainable only to stream this year via NBC’s Peacock service.
