    BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Doug Burgum has proclaimed Saturday as Miss America Cara Mund Day in North Dakota to coincide with homecoming ceremonies for the Bismarck native. On September 10th, Mund became the first Miss North Dakota to be crowned Miss America, and only the fourth Miss North Dakota to reach the top 10 of the competition.

    A 2012 graduate of Bismarck Century High School, Mund has raised nearly $80,000 for Make-A-Wish through the North Dakota Make-A-Wish Fashion Show she founded 10 years ago. She also interned for U.S. Sen. John Hoeven last year and has said she wants to be North Dakota's first female governor.

    "Cara Mund has represented her home state in an exceptional manner," Burgum said. "Her hard work and perseverance, dedication to public service and commitment to improving the lives of others is a source of immense pride for people across North Dakota. We celebrate her return home and wish her a successful reign as Miss America."

    Williston, home of the Miss North Dakota pageant, will host a homecoming celebration for Mund starting at 6 p.m. tonight at Bakken Elementary School, with Lt. Gov. Brent Sanford among the scheduled speakers. Mund will then return to her hometown for a welcome home party at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Bismarck Event Center.
