The 2018 Miss USA competition is fast approaching.
This year, the event will air on FOX on Monday, May 21 at 8 p.m. It will take place at George’s Pond at Hirsch Coliseum in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana, with hosts Vanessa and Nick Lachey.
The 2017 winner, Kára McCullough, will also be in attendance to crown the winner.
It’s unclear exactly what the winner receives this year, aside from the crown. But according to Elite Daily, the 2017 prize package included the opportunity to travel, a luxury apartment in New York City, and access to a fabulous wardrobe.
In addition to material items, past winners have been able to use their platform and popularity to spread awareness about causes that they feel passionately about.
