TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) _ A 30-year-old mother of three from northern Wyoming is the new Mrs. America.

Mrs. Oklahoma finished as third runner-up in the contest in Tucson, Arizona.

Mrs. Wyoming Kelly McBee won the national crown Wednesday in a ceremony at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort.

She works as a beauty consultant in the town of Worland.

First runner-up is Mrs. Tennessee Christina Ryan; second runner-up is Mrs. Nebraska Michele Strom; and third runner-up is Mrs. Oklahoma Melissa Soto of Tulsa.

Organizers of the event say the Mrs. America award ``spotlights some of the most accomplished, contemporary, poised, articulate and attractive married women.''
