Caressa Cameron, who was crowned Miss Arlington 2009 and then Miss Virginia 2009, was crowned Miss America 2010 on Saturday’s nationally-televised pageant. Cameron, a Fredericksburg, Va. native, wins a $50,000 and will now embark on a national publicity tour.

Cameron’s first appearance was on Live! with Regis and Kelly this morning.  She will appear on entertainment show EXTRA tonight.  The show airs locally at 2:00 AM on ABC 7 (WJLA).

Although Cameron’s media duties will keep her in New York for now, expect a homecoming for the beauty queen no later than April. Traditionally, Miss America winners participate in the National Cherry Blossom Festival parade.

The Washington Post‘s story about Cameron’s win can be found here, interviews with her parents here, and comments on Cameron’s winning qualities from pageant judge and radio host Rush Limbaugh here.
