    Default Miss America 2009



    22-year-old Miss Indiana Katie Stam won the Miss America 2009 pageant and a $50,000 scholarship.


    Miss Indiana crowned new Miss America

    In ball gowns, blue jeans and bikinis, 52 young women took to the stage Saturday to compete for the Miss America 2009 title. But only one beauty took the crown — Miss Indiana Katie Stam. While accepting her new position from host Mario Lopez and Miss America 2008 Kirsten Haglund of Michigan, Stam shared her glory with fellow contestants. “I’m gonna thank all these amazing girls behind me — I love them all so much,” she said. The 22-year-old University of Indianapolis student battled a throat infection and laryngitis throughout the week but still drew loud applause for her rendition of "Via Dolorosa" during the talent competition. Stam said she had trouble sleeping one night this week while she took prescription medicine to fight the infection, but got her voice back by Thursday.

    "I was feeling like myself again — I will never take my health for granted," she said.The Seymour native also strutted onstage in a black bikini and an off-the-shoulder, white lace evening gown. During the interview portion of the competition she decried the use of performance-enhancing drugs among professional athletes and discussed the definition of glamour. "That beauty that you feel on the inside, it's that confidence, that radiance inside of you, that's what glamour is," Stam said.

    Stam won a $50,000 scholarship and hopes to obtain a bachelor's degree in communications and become a television news anchor. She began competing in pageants at age 15.
