HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A 21-year-old art major at the University of Arkansas has been crowned Miss Arkansas 2016.

Pageant spokeswoman Toni Bahn says Miss Heart of the Ozarks Savvy Shields of Fayetteville was named the winner Saturday night. Roberts won a $25,000 scholarship. She also won more than $75,000 in awards, wardrobe, transportation, and gifts.

Shields’ platform was “Eat Better, Live Better.” She will represent Arkansas at the 2017 Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City.

The event was held at the Bank of the Ozarks Arena in Hot Springs.

Miss University of Arkansas Savannah Skidmore was named the first runner-up, and Miss South Central Arkansas Brooke Cornelius was named the second runner-up.
