More Than One Way To Win

If you are chosen to be the state queen for your age division, then you will receive a packet of information to help you get started preparing for the National Pageant in Anaheim California over the week of Thanksgiving. One state queen from every state, in your age division will compete to win the National American Miss Title. As a state queen you will have the opportunity to travel to state pageants to visit and help out with the pageants. As visiting royalty you will become more acquainted with our program and it will help you understand what the pageant experience is really like at nationals. If you are chosen as a state queen, then you may choose to be crowned on stage at your state pageant (if there is a pageant in that state but not that age division) or at a state pageant close to your state. We want you to have the exciting opportunity to be a part of a state pageant and be crowned on stage.

If you are chosen as one of the four state runners-up, then you will be given the opportunity to represent your state as a city queen and be eligible to compete in the National All-American Miss Pageant. This pageant is held at the same time as the National American Miss Pageant and a new National Queen will be chosen for each age division in the National All-American Miss Pageant.
