Ex-Miss Delaware allowed to keep scholarship

DOVER, Del. (AP) -- The woman who was named the Miss Delaware has lost her crown because she is older than the Miss America organization allows.

However, she will be allowed to keep the scholarship she won in the contest.

Elizabeth Souchek, legal counsel for the Miss Delaware Scholarship Organization, tells WDEL-AM that Amanda Longacre will be able to keep the $9,000.

The 24-year-old Longacre was crowned June 14, but lost the crown Wednesday. Miss America pageant rules require contestants to be between 17 and 24, and Longacre will turn 25 on Oct. 22, before year's end.

Pageant officials said Thursday that Longacre did nothing wrong and had accurately reported her birthdate on applications.

Runner-up Brittany Lewis was crowned Miss Delaware on Thursday and will also get $9,000 in scholarship money.
