Prepare the World for great women.
How is the Miss America program different than Miss USA?
In 1952, Catalina Swimsuits founded the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants as product promotion tools because the Miss America that year refused to wear the swimsuit. Developed by the Miss America Organization, the Miss America program exists to provide personal and professional opportunities for young women to promote their voices in culture, politics and the community. Almost all candidates have either received, or are in the process of earning college or postgraduate degrees and utilize Miss America scholarship grants to further their educations. The Miss America Organization is the leading provider of scholarships for young women in the world. Although some young women compete in both Miss America and Miss USA, the two systems are completely separate.
As a local committee, and strong believers in the MAO, we continue to
stand strong with the organization. It has changed the lives of
thousands of young women all over the United States of America and will
continue to do so. We stand proud, promoting Style, Service,
Scholarship, and Success. The Miss America Board works hard to ensure the betterment of the program in its entirety. While some may or may not agree with these changes; we believe it is an improvement of the program and will continue to support the program and platform it stands for!
