COLUMBUS — Christina McCauley has been named Miss Georgia 2010.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that the 21-year-old, competing as Miss Southern Heartland, took the crown Saturday. She was one of 40 contestants in the 66th Miss Georgia Scholarship Pageant.

McCauley sang "This Is My Beloved" from the operetta "Kismit" during the talent portion of the competition.
