Gretchen Carlson is a former Miss America and the chair of the Board of Trustees of The Miss America Organization. She recently announced the new direction of the competition:

"We are now open, inclusive and transparent and I want to inspire thousands of young people across this country to come and be a part of our program," she said. "We want you and we want to celebrate your accomplishments and your talents and then we want to hand you scholarships."
