Giannini, 21, had been close to the crown before. According to PressOfAtlanticCity this was her fourth Miss New Jersey contest, and in years past she had finished in second- and fourth-place. Giannini’s platform is raising awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. During the discussion portion of the final round, when the field of 28 was down to five, Giannini said she helped install permanent street signs that raise awareness of the issue.
She said the signs are in 25 states and that she testified before the Senate and municipalities about the issue. She said as Miss New Jersey 2015, she will continue to promote that platform.
