    UVM student wins Miss Vermont

    SOUTH BURLINGTON — A 22-year-old University of Vermont student has been crowned Miss Vermont.

    Jeanelle Achee of Rochester won the 2013 title Saturday night in a competition at South Burlington High School.

    For her win, Achee receives more than $9,000 in scholarships and $12,000 in prizes. She also gets the opportunity to compete for the Miss America title in Atlantic City, N.J., in September.

    During her year as Miss Vermont, Achee will travel across the state advocating for victims of sexual violence and promoting healthy relationships.
