Empowering Women to Lead
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.

I had to find a way to pay for myself to go to school and so I entered this competition and this organization and it became much more than just the scholarship money for me, it was also about the mentorship, leadership and sisterhood you find in this program.
I want to use my platform to promote inclusion, open-mindedness, and empathy, especially because of the world that we're in today.
Miss America can be a scientist and a scientist can be Miss America.
More than a competition.
Miss America is not just a brand, or 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.
Sometimes the greatest hurdle is inside you. We believe in building women up to feel they can take on the world.
Our network of women believe in supporting each other, advocating for change and giving back to the community.
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.
