With competitions in academics, community service, fitness, talent, and interview, the Miss America Preliminary Pageants give contestants skills and confidence to shine in other areas of life including job interview and performance, leadership, and personal health.
Another jewel obtained through the Miss America Organization is community involvement through use of platforms that raise awareness an affect change for social issues. Young women are also given opportunities to reach out and support charitable organizations as the Miss America Organization strives to enhance community service around the country.
Most importantly, the local Miss America Preliminary Pageants mark the beginning of countless friendships. These are the most precious jewels that are helped close to the hearts of many. The jewel that sparkles most brightly, however, is the personal learning and growing that takes place. Each jewel contributed by the Miss America Organization creates the crown of a beautiful young woman who is poised, confident, and ready to pursue her dreams and goals by providing young women today with the tools for tomorrow.
