What is Miss America, really?
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 program is a year-round opportunity for women to earn scholarships, grow their networks, learn valuable life and career skills, and make a difference in their communities. For over 100 years, we have been committed to empowering the advocates and leaders of tomorrow, and we’re just getting started. If you’re interested in learning more about the program or want to sign up to compete, please click below.
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.
The Miss America Competition you see on TV is just one component of the year-round program. Even if you don’t want to compete on-stage, registering for the program 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 want to hone your interview skills, showcase your talents, earn additional scholarships, and compete for the job of 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.

I realized I have this national audience right now. If I talk about this, there are so many lives that I could impact.
