BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- A homecoming party is scheduled in Bismarck next month for newly crowned Miss America Cara Mund.

The 23-year-old Bismarck native won the competition last month. She's the first winner from North Dakota in the history of the nearly century-old scholarship pageant.

The welcome-home party is scheduled Nov. 4 at the Bismarck Event Center, starting at 3 p.m. Tickets are required - $10 for adults and $5 for children age 3 through the 12th grade.
