Teresa Scanlan is no longer Miss America.

The Nebraska beauty turned over her Miss America crown to a new
winner Saturday night, 23-year-old Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler.

Scanlan, of Gering, who was crowned Miss America last January,
was the first Miss Nebraska to win the pageant. At 17, she also was
the youngest Miss America to have won the crown since the pageant
set up age limits in 1938.

Her Miss America platform was the risks of eating disorders.

Scanlan plans to use her Miss America scholarship to pay for law
school.
