We Are Looking for You!
The Miss America Program
Like most Americans, you've probably seen the Miss America competition televised live annually from Atlantic City, NJ. What you probably haven't seen is what's going on behind the scenes of the show, thanks to hundreds of thousands of volunteers throughout the country.
The nationally televised Miss America competition is just one very small part of a nationwide, community service network that operates 12 months a year in every state and more than a thousand cities and towns across the country. On an annual basis, Miss America state and local titleholders, along with the Organization's network of volunteers, participate in more than 12,000 community service projects, providing in excess of 500,000 service hours to worthy causes.
The Miss America Organization is one of the nation's leading achievement programs and the world's largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women. Each year, the Miss America Organization makes available more than $41 million in cash and tuition scholarship assistance. The program exists to give young women a vehicle to further their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which they can express their talents, intelligence and opinions on culture, politics and the community.
Local and state Miss America programs - more than a thousand of them, in fact - are all part of the vast Miss America network. The volunteers who run these programs do much more than put on an annual competition. They provide scholarships that help finance the education of thousands of young women every year. They create opportunities for young women's voices to be heard across the nation on important social issues. And they help young women gain the personal and professional skills they need to succeed in life.
