Miss America 2017 is: Miss Arkansas Savvy Shields

Miss Arkansas Savvy Shields has claimed the title of 2017's Miss America.

Shields took home the crown with a jazz routine during the talent portion and a question about Hillary Clinton during the Q&A. Shields won the preliminary talent competition earlier in the week.

After her run as Miss America, Shields, 21, will return to the University of Arkansas as a senior studying art. “I want to hopefully work in a museum and teach at a collegiate level,” she said about her plans for the future.

Miss South Carolina Rachel Wyatt was the night's first runner-up.

The second runner-up was Miss New York Camille Sims. The third runner-up was Miss Washington Alicia Cooper, and the fourth runner-up was Miss Mississippi Laura Lee Lewis.
