Miss North Carolina Victoria Huggins departed Tuesday for Atlantic City, N.J., where she will compete for Miss America. Huggins, of St. Pauls, is the 80th Miss North Carolina to compete for Miss America. Only one “Queen of the Tarheel State” has traded in her state crown for the Miss America crown — Maria Fletcher of Asheville, who was Miss America 1962. Huggins aims to be the second. The competition begins in earnest with preliminary competitions in talent, swimsuit, evening gown and interview on Sept. 6. The famous “Show Us Your Shoes Parade” will take place Saturday, Sept. 9, rain or shine, on the Atlantic City Boardwalk. Miss America will be crowned Sept. 10 live on ABC starting at 9 p.m.
