Miss America will be crowned at a live event after a virtual year

Ancasville, Connecticut (AP) — The organizer is the 100th Miss America on Thursday in front of a live audience at Mohigansan Casino, Connecticut, following a year of pandemic virtual appearances and competition delays. Announced that it will be crowned.

Jeff Hamilton, President and General Manager of Mohegan Sun, said:

Organizers had to postpone the scheduled broadcast and convention in 2020 until 2021 and extend the reign of the current Miss America, Camille Schlier, by two years. This year’s event and broadcast is scheduled for December, and no specific dates have yet been announced.

The Miss American organization said Thursday that it had agreed to hold a three-day tournament event and a national broadcast final for three years at Mohegan Sun, a resort casino owned and operated by the Mohegan tribe in southeastern Connecticut. ..

In 2019, the organization announced that it would leave Atlantic City, NJ again.

Former Miss Virginia Schlier, who demonstrated colorful chemistry at Mohigansan in 2019, gave a virtual demonstration in the backyard during a pandemic to get children interested in science and “appear” from the underground studio. Said Chantel Krebs, chair of the Miss America Board of Directors, who discussed drug safety and opioids.
