Stacie Juris was crowned Miss Illinois USA 2013 on Sunday at Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago. She will now represent Illinois at the Miss USA 2013 competition. Stacie Juris is a pageant veteran. She was winner of Miss Illinois Teen USA 2009, first runner-up at Miss Illinois Teen USA 2008 and first runner-up at the Miss Illinois USA 2011 pageant. The 22-years-old Juris’s hobbies include volunteer work, modeling, spending time with her friends and cheerleading.
Stacie Juris was in controversy. She was caught attempting to leave a shopping mall with over $200 of clothes stashed inside her purse. She was arrested and charge sheet of theft was filed. The legal battle has been settled now as all charges were dropped.
Lets see after such controversy, how she answers the judge question in the Miss USA 2013 competition as many of the Illinois people are worried about her selection. I personally believe that the contestants should be a real role model and not just a crap found in some controversy.

- Winner: Stacie Juris
