(AP) Atlantic City will welcome back the Miss America pageant with a ceremony Tuesday afternoon on the shore city's famed boardwalk for all 53 contestants.


The pageant is returning to the New Jersey city where it was founded after a six-year run in Las Vegas.


The contestants one from each state, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands will gather across from Boardwalk Hall for a welcoming ceremony.


The competition will end with the crowning of the next Miss America on Sept. 15 in a nationwide television broadcast.


Last year, the Miss America Organization and its state and local organizations made available more than $45 million in scholarship assistance.
