Teresa Scanlan, Miss Nebraska, Crowned Miss America 2011 Announced

The Miss America pageant has been around for 90 years, but a Miss Nebraska had never won the title -- until last night when Teresa Scanlan was announced Miss America 2011.

The 17-year old from Gering, Nebraska was named the youngest champion of all-time on Saturday night, earning the crown by performing "White Water Chopsticks" on the piano. She was the only contestant to neither sing nor dance.

eresa Scanlan won a $50,000 scholarship and a yearlong run with the crown at the competition Saturday night at the Planet Hollywood casino-resort in Las Vegas, giving the Cornhusker State its first-ever win at the pageant.

She was the youngest Miss America since the pageant's first competition in 1921, when Margaret Gorman of the District of Columbia won at age 15.
