LAS VEGAS (HawaiiNewsNow) - During the first night of competition, Miss Hawaii Jalee Fuselier was named preliminary Lifestyle and Fitness winner of the 2011 Miss America Pageant at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Fuselier was the preliminary winner in a black Swim 'n Sport swimsuit and will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

 "We are very proud of our representative's initial success at the pageant," said Miss Hawaii Organization president Lincoln Jacobe. " Jalee has worked very, very hard to achieve this success and has accomplished a great deal so far and we continue to support her during this week of competition."

 As the world's largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women and one of the nation's leading achievement programs, the Miss America Organization last year made available more than $45 million in cash and scholarship assistance.

The Miss America Organization provides young women with a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals and instills a spirit of community service through a variety of nationwide community-based programs.
