Miss Scarborough took to the stage to represent the town and district in the Miss England final.
The event was held last night in Southport and the crown was awarded to Miss Preston, Elizabeth Grant.
Lauren Cole, 20, from Filey took part in the contest representing Scarborough and Hull.
Regional manager Diane Yalezo said: "I couldn't be happier. Lauren may not have won, but she represented both Scarborough and Hull brilliantly.
"I was so very proud of her up there. I'm looking forward to working with her over the next exciting year to come.
"Well done Lauren!"
