How to Become a Contestant:

You have ideas and plans and goals – so much to offer the world – but how? Each year young women JUST LIKE YOU choose to compete in the Miss America System for a variety of reasons. Participation in the Miss America program not only helps young women pay for college and prepare for their careers, it also provides an opportunity for them to gain additional life experiences that include volunteerism and philanthropy.

Nationwide, participants volunteer over 500,000 hours annually and raise tens of thousands of dollars for local and national charitable organizations. To become Miss America, a contestant must first win a local competition like the Miss South Florida Fair Scholarship Pageant, and then compete to represent her state at the Miss Florida Pageant.

We will be awarding over $13,000 in scholarships at our pageant which will be held Saturday, January 13, 2018. There is no cost to compete in our program…all you need is commitment, perseverance, talent and ambition!
