Megan Lyman was crowned the new Miss New Hampshire last Saturday night, and she will now get ready to represent her state in Miss America 2013.

Lyman is not new to pageants. She is a former Miss New Hampshire Outstanding Teen and represented her state at the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen pageant. She was also a preliminary swimsuit winner at the 2011 Miss New Hampshire pageant, and is a former Miss Weirs Beach.

This year, she entered the state pageant as Miss Lakes Region.

Her talent is tap dancing, and her pageant platform is “Make-A-Wish Foundation: Providing Children with Hope, Strength and Joy.”

Miss America 2013 will be broadcast live on the ABC television network, live from Las Vegas, next January.
