From Associated Press reports

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – Miss Virginia Caressa Cameron has won the 2010 Miss America title after strutting in a yellow dress, belting Beyonce's "Listen" from "Dreamgirls" and telling kids they should get outside more often.

Cameron won a $50,000 scholarship and the crown in Las Vegas after a Saturday night pageant that started with 53 contestants.

Cameron, a 22-year-old from Fredericksburg, outlasted her opponents in swimsuit, evening gown, talent and interview competitions.

Miss California Kristy Cavinder was the first runner-up, winning $25,000.

Cameron is a broadcast journalism student at Virginia Commonwealth University, and wants to become an anchor. Cameron had won the Miss Virginia contest as Miss Arlington.
