MISS CONNECTICUT 2016
Alyssa Taglia was crowned Miss Connecticut at the Cabaret Theater at Mohegan Sun on June 18.
Taglia, 22, beat a field of 16 other very well-rounded young women for the coveted title, and will be competing in the Miss America competition in Atlantic City this September.
A graduate of Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Taglia was first runner-up in the 2013 Miss Connecticut competition, and placed second runner-up in 2014. She did not compete in 2015, but that year off helped her win this year.
