UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News) Wisconsin's entry in the Miss America pageant finished just outside of the Top-10. Paula Mae Kuiper of Mount Pleasant made it to the Top-15, and then the final 12 in last night's televised finals. She was eliminated when 10 women were picked for the talent competition.
The 20-year-old Kuiper won the Miss Wisconsin pageant earlier this year as Miss Madison-Capital City. She was Miss Racine the year before.
Miss New York won last night's pageant for the second year in a row. Nina Davuluri won the crown from Mallory Hagan.
The pageant was moved back to its long-time home in Atlantic City after six years in Las Vegas.
