Ms. America Pageant Inc. is for women 26 years of age and up Single, Divorced, Widowed or Married.
No Swimsuit. No Talent. The pageant brand is classy, elegant and business professional. We are looking for dynamic women who would love to use their "Crown for a Purpose" to make a difference in their community and mentor those around her in a positive and uplifting way. All contestants must have one platform that they would like to promote.

The pageant took a survey and we listened! Normally to enter the Ms. America Pageant the cost is $1500.00. In order to keep the cost down we made the pageant a 2 day pageant where madatory Orientation and Rehearsals start on Friday and the pageant is Saturday. An optional fun event or Pageant Bootcamp could be on Thursday for those of you who arrive to the pageant on Thursday.

The 2022 pageant is accepting contestants for this year and FIVE women will be crowned on the final night.
