Miss American Teen provides a great pageantry experience for the modern American girl on her way to success. We help young women and girls build confidence, learn valuable skills and network with other powerful teens who are making a difference in their communities.
Available Titles: Miss American Jr. Teen, Miss American Teen, Miss American Collegiate
Our Pageant has an open enrollment policy. You may, but are not required to, participate in an official Preliminary Pageant for an opportunity to win a fee-paid entry to Internationals. Otherwise, you may apply for an Appointed Title to compete at Internationals as a self-pay. Signing up requires two easy steps, 1) Applying for an Appointed Title (below), and 2) Paying your Registration Fees for mandatory and optional competitions and events. You are not considered enrolled until you complete Step 2 (Registration).
Step One (Application):
Complete the Appointed Title Application (see "Apply Now" button) and pay the national application fee, $50. Please be specific in your responses to the Delegate Profile section, including the Year of Service platform.
Upload a headshot photo of yourself. Be sure the photo is clear with good lighting. Remember, photos should be representative of you and will be reviewed by our judges, including grooming. Please do not upload crown and sash photos.
Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted within a few days to confirm your eligibility.
Once your eligibility has been confirmed, you are cleared to Register to compete for the International title for your division and available optional competitions, including the Miss American Teen Latina Pageant.
If you complete the application without paying the $50 fee, your application is not transmitted to us by the system and we cannot see or act on it.
Step Two (Registration):
In order to receive an official Title, you must Register for the International Pageant and pay the Sponsorshp Fee. The International Pageant Registration Form is available by selecting "Backstage - Register" from the main website menu.
Provide three (3) prospective titles (in order of preference).
After Registration is completed and an official Title assigned, we will order your custom sash (allow up to 4 weeks for delivery), mail your crown and order your opening number dress.
**Pageant/Sponsorship Fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. If the International Pageant is affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic, it will be rescheduled.
Please refer to Delegate Handbook for available Special competitions.
