Who Won Miss America 2017? Meet Arkansas' Savvy Shields!

The winner of the 2017 Miss America pageant was announced during the live event held on Sunday night (September 11) at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J.

The top seven ladies were announced near the end of the show and all of the women had to answer a question about current events. The pageant is held at the end of 2016 so that the winner can serve the following year.

The questions ranged from the presidential candidates to immigration issues to Colin Kaepernick‘s decision to sit down during the National Anthem.

Ultimately, Miss Arkansas Savvy Shields was crowned the winner by the panel of seven celebrity judges. The University of Arkansas student performed a dance routine to a song from Smash as her talent.
