Miss Southwestern Pennsylvania LauRen Merola of Pittsburgh was awarded the Miracle Maker Award at the recent Miss Pennsylvania Pageant held last month at Nazareth Area High School.

To earn the Miracle Maker Award, Merola successfully raised more funds for Children's Miracle Network -- the Miss America Organization's first national platform -- than any other contestant in Pennsylvania.

Merola also took home the Miss America Community Service Award at the pageant.

Though the Miss America Organization has worked with Children's Miracle Network for the past 18 years, 2007 marks the beginning of an official partnership between the two groups.
