Reigning Miss America Teresa Scanlan, a 17-year-old from Nebraska, reportedly became the pageant’s youngest winner ever last year. She will transfer her crown to the pageant winner that will emerge from the 53 candidates of the 2012 Miss America.

The 2012 Miss America Pageant will have a panel of seven judges. The Saturday night’s coronation will be the culmination of a week of preliminary competitions and months of preparations for all the contestants from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

A three night preliminary competition was earlier held at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

The Miss America 2012 winner will receive $50,000 scholarship and will have the opportunity to go around the country and speak to different groups and raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network, the Miss America Organization’s official charity.

At the Pageant night on Saturday, more contestants will be eliminated during swimsuit, evening gown and talent competitions.

The top five finalists will have to answer a question from one of the judges.
