Miss District of Columbia wins Miss USA 2017

Kara McCullough wins Miss USA 2017
Kara McCullough, a 25-year-old chemist working for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, crowned as the new Miss USA, beating out 50 other state titleholders on Sunday.

The Miss District of Columbia was crowned during the event that took place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the Las Vegas Strip. She will go on to compete on the Miss Universe contest.

The runner-up was Miss New Jersey Chhavi Verg, a student at Rutgers University studying marketing and Spanish. 

The second runner-up was Miss Minnesota Meridith Gould, who is studying apparel retail merchandising at the University of Minnesota.

Fifty-one women representing each state and the nation's capital participated in the decades-old competition.

McCullough was born in Naples, Italy, and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She wants to inspire children to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Last year, District of Columbia resident Deshauna Barber became the first-ever military member to win Miss USA.

The three finalists were all asked to explain what they consider feminism to be and whether they consider themselves feminists. 

They modeled their final looks of the night during a performance of Pitbull's "Options" featuring Stephen Marley.

The beauty pageant this year included five women who immigrated to the US at a young age and now as citizens hoped to represent the nation on a global stage, according to AP.
