The annual Miss America pageant took place this past Sunday night (11 September), and as always the competition was tough. Gathering contestants from each of the nation's 52 states, it was a night of glitz and glam.
Throughout the evening contestants competed in various events, including the highly anticipated swimsuit competition.
As tough as the competition was, there can only be one winner at the end of the night, and this year Miss Arkansas, Savvy Shields, took home the crown.
Below, we've included some highlights from our favourite segment, the swimsuit competition.
