On the third and final night of the 2014 Miss America preliminary competitions back home in Atlantic City, Miss Florida, Myrrhanda Jones was named Thursday night’s preliminary Talent winner for her baton twirling performance to “Big Noise From Winnetka” in Boardwalk Hall. Myrrhanda will receive a $2,000 scholarship. Also capturing the spotlight was Miss Georgia, Carly Mathis, who was the preliminary Lifestyle and Fitness winner in a white Catalina swimsuit.

As the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women and one of the nation’s leading achievement programs, the Miss America Organization last year made available more than $45 million in scholarship assistance. The Miss America Organization provides young women with a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals and instills a spirit of community service through a variety of nationwide community-based programs.
