Cameron, 22, earned the Miss Virginia title on her fourth attempt. Caressa’s platform will focus on AIDS education.
“I lost an uncle to AIDS, and my family also helped care for a foster child with juvenile AIDS,” Caressa said. “I really think our school systems do a wonderful job educating students about AIDS. But young people have developed an apathetic attitude toward this disease and feel this can’t affect them.”

Judges included Rush Limbaugh, Miss America 2001 Katie Harman, actress Vivica A. Fox, Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson, musician Dave Koz, former “American Idol” contestant Brooke White and actor/comedian Paul Rodriguez.
