The Miss South Florida / Miss Palm Beach County Scholarship Competition is a local Competition under the Miss America Organization.Our Competition is held the first Saturday of the South Florida Fair each year.To become Miss America, a candidate must first win a local Competition, like the Miss South Florida Fair / Miss Palm Beach County Scholarship Competition. She then competes in the Miss Florida Competition and, if she wins, she will represent Florida at the Miss America Competition.
Each year young women 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.Locally, our Competition awards over $15,500 in Scholarships to our titleholders and runners-up.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all Competitions, including Miss America, have been cancelled until mid to late 2021.As a result, the Miss South Florida Fair / Miss Palm Beach County Competition for January, 2021, will not be held. All current titleholders will retain their title for an additional year.
