A Cumberland County woman has been crowned Miss New Jersey.
She also won several smaller accolades, including the interview award and the Miss America Organization's academic award for $1,000.
The 22-year-old Udalovas will now compete in the Miss America Pageant, scheduled for Jan. 15 in Las Vegas.
Udalovas , who tap-danced to the "Pink Panther" theme song during the talent portion, succeeds last year's winner, Ashley Shaffer, of Millstone Township.
Former Miss New Jersey and stand-up comic Dena Blizzard emceed the pageant, and John Zisa -- a Top 40 contestant from season four of "American Idol" -- provided entertainment.
The four-day event began Wednesday.
