Miss North Dakota Cara Mund was crowned Miss America 2018 on Sunday, September 10, during the annual pageant at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The Bismark native, 23, bested the 50 other competitors to claim the title, succeeding outgoing Miss America Savvy Shields of Arkansas. Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis finished in second place, followed by Miss New Jersey Kaitlyn Schoeffel. Mund will receive a $50,000 scholarship for her win, in addition to a six-figure salary and a contract with Dick Clark Productions.
Here are five things to know about Mund.
1. She's the First Miss America From North Dakota Mund became the first-ever woman from the Peace Garden State to claim the prize. "We've only had three girls [from North Dakota] ever make it [to the Top 10]," she said during the pageant. "It just proves that it doesn't matter where you come from geographically. If you have the ability to do it and you dream it, you can do it."
2. She Wants to Be the Governor of North Dakota
The Brown University graduate's dream is to become the first woman elected governor of her state. In fact, she comes from a family of firsts. "I am related to Victoria Clafin Woodhull the first woman to run for U.S. President, the first woman to operate a brokerage firm on Wall Street and one of the first females to found a newspaper. Since it runs in my family, what will be my first?" Mund wrote in her biography on the Miss America website.
3. She Has an Opinion on the Trump Administration
During the Q&A segment of the pageant, judge Maria Menounos asked Mund about President Donald Trump's controversial decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. "I do believe it's a bad decision," she said, earning applause from the audience. "Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that's something that we really need to keep in mind. There is evidence that climate change is existing, so whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table, and I think it's just a bad decision on behalf of the United States."

4. She's a Dancer
Mund, who is a national dance champion, impressed the judges with a jazz routine to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" during the talent portion of the show. According to her Instagram, she has been "dancing her way through life since 1996."
5. She's Charitable
Mund was selected as a finalist for the Jean Bartel Quality of Life Award in the pageant's preliminary competition for her commitment to community service. According to The Bismarck Tribune, she has partnered with Make-A-Wish North Dakota for the past 10 years, raised $78,000 and granted 23 wishes for children in her home state.
