Who Won Miss America 2016? Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell!
Shortly after the program began, the ladies were narrowed down to the top 15, which included Miss Tennessee Hannah Williams Robison, Miss Iowa Taylor Wiebers, Miss West Virginia Chelsea Jean Malone, Miss South Carolina Daja Dial, Miss Florida Mary Katherine Fechtel, Miss Oklahoma Georgia Frazier, Miss Virginia Savannah Lane, Miss Alabama Meg McGuffin, Miss Colorado Kelley Johnson, Miss Louisiana April Nelson, Miss Texas Shannon Sanderford, Miss Nebraska Alyssa Howell, Miss Georgia Betty Cantrell, Miss Mississippi Hannah Roberts, and Miss Arkansas Loren McDaniel.
