Laura Kaeppeler, otherwise known as Miss Wisconsin, was crowned Miss America last night in Las Vegas on the 91st anniversary of the pageant. The 23-year old, who sang for her talent and showed off a white bikini in the swimsuit competition, wins a $50,000 scholarship and will represent Miss America for the next year. She plans to focus on education and use her scholarship to attend law school.
