Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2023 is Morgan Greco of Washington

Washington's Morgan Greco was crowned Miss America's Outstanding Teen 2023 on Friday, August 12 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas.

The runners-up were Lauren Williams of the District of Columbia, J-Belle Kimbrell of Texas, Julia Schumacher of Minnesota, and Dajania James of New York.

Last year's winner, an actress and singer from Birmingham, Alabama, Marcelle LeBlanc, crowned her successor at the end of the event.

A total of 51 most talented teens from across the USA competed in the American scholarship pageant that aims to "promote scholastic achievement, creative accomplishment, healthy living and community involvement for America's teens."

The new Miss America's Outstanding Teen is an opera singer and businesswoman from Camas whose career goals include marketing, business, and opera. As a Krav Maga student, she advocates "Empowerment Starts With Me" to encourage young women to empower themselves through self-defense, and to build up women's self-worth and inner strength to fight back for themselves.

Founded in 2005, Miss America’s Outstanding Teen has become one of the top scholarship providers for teen girls in the country.
