Bismarck native Cara Mund was crowned Miss America on Sunday night in Atlantic City N.J

Miss America 2018, Cara Mund, stepped out into the sun's glare on the Atlantic City Boardwalk Monday morning for the traditional post-crowning toe-dip in the Atlantic Ocean, wearing a royal purple dress with fringe, her crown and platform sandals ill-suited to the walking in the sand.

Ivy League graduate and national dance champion Cara Mund from North Dakota won the Miss America pageant on Sunday, becoming the first contestant from the state to ever win the 91-year-old pageant. Judge Maria Menounos asked Mund: "195 countries signed the Paris agreement, in which each country sets non-binding goals to reduce man-made climate change".

Along with the crown, the new Miss America won a $50,000 (£37000) scholarship, a six-figure salary for the next one year and a contract with Dick Clark Productions.

In one of her onstage interviews, Mund said Trump was wrong to withdraw the USA from the climate accord aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming. "There is evidence that climate change is existing". 'Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that's something that we really need to keep in mind'.

DWTS Finally Confirmed All the Contestants For Season 25
Nick Lachey's pro partner is Peta Murgatroyd , who is married to Vanessa Lachey's pro partner, Maks Chmerkovskiy. Drew Scott of " Property Brothers " with Emma Slater , who won last season with Rashad Jennings .

During the question-and-answer portion, Miss America candidates were asked different questions about the current political affairs and President Trump and therefore the event became political. "It's important to have a woman's perspective". "I think the answer is to relocate them into museums", she said.

"So we need to always remember our history of being slave owning racists?"

Mund graduated from Brown University in Rhode Island this spring and competed in the Miss North Dakota pageant in June. 'In health care and on reproductive rights, it's predominantly men making those decisions'.

Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis emerged as 1st Runner-Up, while Kaitlyn Schoeffel representing New Jersey came in at 2nd Runner-Up. Cara Mund will be on tour every month to promote her advocacy, which is the Make A Wish - Passion with Fashion. She takes over for last year's victor, Miss Arkansas Savvy Shields.
