A resident from Woolwich Township has been crowned Miss New Jersey.

Jaime Gialloreto, 19, won the title Saturday night at the Ocean City Music Pier, beating out 27 other contestants.

It was the second time Gialloreto had competed in the pageant.

She was the third-runner-up last year.

Her platform was "Don't Get Nutty: Food Allergy Awareness."
