A new Miss America has been crowned.
Miss New York's Nia Franklin took home the title on Sunday and assumed the position from 2018 winner Cara Mund.
Held at the Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., this year's event was proudly dubbed "Miss America 2.0" and signified the start of a new era, one that promoted a more empowering message.
