Nevada has never had a Miss America. Miss Nevada is excited to become the next Miss America.

This year’s contest comes at a bizarre time in the pageant world. In December, Miss USA Tara Conner in December came close to losing her crown for allegedly partying too much, while Miss Nevada USA Katie Rees lost her crown a short time after internet photos surfaced.
Miss America program, a non profit organization, is unrelated to the Miss USA/Miss Universe family.
Today the pageant is the world’s leading provider of scholarships to young women.
The crowd favorite was Las Vegas Miss Nevada, who drew cheers for her simple line, “I’m the hometown girl, I’m from Las Vegas, and I’m Caydi Cole of Nevada.”
Caydi Cole, 22, Las Vegan, a graduate of the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts.
Cole, who advanced to the Miss Nevada pageant in July after winning the Miss Clark County crown, performed a jazz vocal to “Blues in the Night” for the talent portion of the state pageant.
The new 2007 Miss America will succeed reigning 2006 Miss America Jennifer Berry.
