Knuttila comes up short at Miss America competition

Kathryn Knuttila, Miss Minnesota 2010 and daughter of Steve Knuttila of Knuttila Financial Services in Perham, came up short at Saturday night's Miss America competition.

Seventeen-year-old Miss Nebraska was crowned Miss America, beating out the 52 other beauty queens.

Knuttila was not one of the 15 finalists to advance past the first round.

In her blog, Knuttila wrote on Saturday that, win or lose, "I know I will be leaving here with no regrets and a huge appreciation for my state, my friends, family and supporters, and for this Organization."
