The 72nd Miss Delaware will be crowned tonight at Dover Downs’ Rollins Center.
Miss Delaware 2012 Alyssa Murray of Selbyville will give up her crown to the new winner; there are 23 contestants.
The Miss Delaware program began in 1933, but the early years were non consecutive because the program was suspended during World War II. Miss Delaware didn’t become a scholarship organization until 1973.
Once the new Miss Delaware is crowned tonight, she’ll go on to Atlantic City in September for the Miss America Pageant.
