What is the Miss America Opportunity?

The public perception of Miss America is often that it’s a one-night telecast, but in reality it’s so much more. This unique opportunity is a year-round program of “Style, Service, Scholarship and Success” – representing the four points of the Miss America crown.  Participants acquire life long skills while earning scholarships, meet other like-minded women, cultivate their own personal style, and engage within their communities. For over 100+ years, The Miss America Organization has been committed to empowering women to lead. If you’re interested in learning more about the program or want to sign up to compete, please click below.

More than a competition.

Miss America is not just one night of a televised competition, as the show is just one component of our year-round opportunity. Miss America membership gives you access to a variety of professional development, networking, scholarship, and community service opportunities year-round.  Check out the Sign Up page to learn more about the benefits of membership. And if you DO want to hone your interview skills, showcase your talents, earn additional scholarships, and compete for Miss America, head to our Competition page.

Confidence

Sometimes the greatest hurdle is inside you. We believe in building women up to feel they can take on the world.

Community

Our network of women believe in supporting each other, advocating for change and giving back to the community.

Choice

Whether it’s access to the university of her choice through scholarship funding or choosing the road less taken, we support a woman’s choice to define her own path.
