For the primary time within the competitors’s historical past, Miss North Dakota was topped Miss America 2018.
Brown College graduate Cara Mund, who has been accepted into Notre Dame Legislation College, made historical past Sunday night time when she turned the first-ever Miss North Dakota to win the Miss America pageant.
The 23-year-old had already made historical past earlier within the competitors when she was the primary North Dakota contestant to be named a high 5 finalist, in keeping with People magazine. Solely three earlier Miss North Dakota opponents had reached the highest 10.
In a video posted to Twitter after the competitors, Mund stated she was honored to win the crown.
Over the four-night competitors, the ladies had been judged primarily based on night put on, health, way of life, expertise and interview classes.
Throughout the interview, Mund was requested concerning the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris accord on local weather change. She stated she believed leaving the settlement was the incorrect resolution.
“There may be proof that local weather change is current,” she stated. “So whether or not you imagine it or not, we have to be at that [negotiation]desk, and I simply assume it’s a foul resolution on behalf of america.”
Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis was named the pageant’s first runner-up.
