ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Miss America is staying in Atlantic City.

Miss America 2014 Nina Davuluri announced Friday that the next pageant will take place in the New Jersey shore resort on Sept. 14.

Preliminary competitions are scheduled over three nights at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall from Sept. 9 to 11.

Davuluri, a Syracuse, N.Y., native, was crowned Miss America in September. The pageant originated in Atlantic City in 1921 and spent six years in Las Vegas before returning to New Jersey last year.

Davuluri plans to use her Miss America scholarship to attend medical school.

The program will be televised by ABC.
