The Miss America Competition has a 98-year history of looking ahead! Miss America was the first competition to offer a talent category and soon after scholarship awards for young women to be able to go to college and further their education.
As women in society have evolved, so has Miss America. Today, the organization empowers young women across the country to be the best they can be through leadership, talent, communication skills and intelligence.
Miss America is more than a title, it’s a movement of empowering young women everywhere to dream big, to insist that their voices be heard and to inspire change in the world around them. Of course, Miss America wears a crown—she rules!
