The 96th Annual Miss America Pageant is set for Sunday, September 11th at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Starting this Tuesday, contestants will take the stage with the goal of becoming Miss America 2017!

But before one lucky lady is crowned, the Miss America Preliminaries are scheduled take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-9 PM at Boardwalk Hall.

The four categories that will make up the preliminaries will include Lifestyle & Fitness, Presence & Poise, Artistic Expression, and On-Stage Questions. The Top 15 contestants will then advance to the Miss America finals!

This is all so exciting. Our fingers will be crossed for Garden State girl, Brenna Weick!
