Miss America Pageant History

Since the early 1920s, the honor of being crowned Miss America has become one of the most honorable and cherished traditions in the United States. Every year, a new queen has the opportunity to showcase not only her mesmerizing beauty, but also a variety of talents and traits to match.

A great deal of hard work and dedication are put forth into orchestrating this annual event, one that features young and talented women from many different walks of life. These role models symbolize what it means to be intelligent and graceful while displaying kindness and understanding. All in all, Miss America is an inspiration for those who aspire to be the best they can possibly be.

Each contestant is required to enter a local pageant before qualifying to be her state’s sole representative. From that point forward, one woman from each state has the opportunity to shine on the national stage in hopes of becoming the belle of the ball for an entire year. Over the last 15 years, the Miss America crown has been passed along to the following winners.

Owning this proud distinction comes with a number of responsibilities. Each Miss America is allowed to champion her own cause while fulfilling the obligations designated by the Miss America Organization. The above-mentioned honorees have donated much of their time towards helping others; many of these women remain proactive in providing humanitarian assistance for those in need.

Eating disorders education, AIDS awareness, diabetes prevention, and a number of other efforts are in place for propelling positive results on a wider scale.

As opposed to the Miss Americas of yesteryear, these women have remained in the spotlight via public speaking engagements that deal with a variety of much-needed community services. They’ve logged literally thousands of miles traveling the country to promote charitable causes while playing instrumental roles in fundraising events. Some have presented their cases to the United States Congress while others have found ways to help at-risk teens.

No matter the cause, each Miss America from the very beginning has contributed her time and effort to promoting the goodness of humanity, and showing that reaching out to lend a hand can be a tremendously rewarding experience.
